This Baked Spaghetti Casserole is SOOOO GOOD!  Seriously!   It might be my favorite baked spaghetti recipe on the blog.  This was recommended by my parents.  They ate it and just raved about it.  We had to give it a try!

This recipe makes enough for 6 people.  I was skeptical because this was made in an 8×8 pan, but it was enough for 6 servings.  We ate this for dinner and lunch the next day.  I froze the last two pieces and we ate them on another night.  It tasted great every time!

  1. Stephanie, I already have spaghetti and sauce made and mixed together from last night. Do you think if I reheated it and mixed in the egg, cottage cheese, etc. that it would turn out ok? Thanks!

  2. I've made this recipe twice lately and it is amazing! How do you think it would turn out if I put it in the crockpot for half a day, maybe 4 hours?

  3. I actually made something similar to this just the other day but instead of cottage cheese I used sour cream and no onion flakes just chopped onions. It was fantastic!! 🙂

  4. I made this tonight and it was delicious, even my hard to please hubby liked it, and even better my 2 year old picky eater gobbled it up! I used Purdue brand Hot Italian Turkey Sausage (casings removed), low fat ricotta (not a cottage cheese fan), and whole wheat spaghetti. This will go in our regular rotation for sure!

  5. Beth – I used stewed tomatoes but ended up crushing them in the food processor because I don't like chunks. So to answer your question – the photo has crushed tomatoes

  6. Hi! This looks great…on the post it calls for a 14.5 oz. can of crushed tomatoes, but when I printed off the printable version it calls for a 14.5 oz. can of stewed tomatoes? Which one is it?? Thanks!

  7. Tried this tonight and it was a big hit. A little spicey for me with the Italian sausage so will try half sausage and half lean ground beef next time but will definitely make again.

  8. Make this tonight, Ladies! I made it Saturday for dinner and it will knock your socks off. I did make it with Johnsonville Italian Sausage and both tomato products had Italian herbs and I substituted dried Italian seasoning for the plain Oregano. It is wonderful and your family will love it. Thank you Steph for such a good recipe.

  9. Sounds fabulous! My kids don't like baked spaghetti, tetrazzini, etc. I don't know what the hell is wrong with them 😉

  10. Do you think subbing Ricotta Cheese instead of cottage cheese would work? I just can't bring myself to even look at cottage cheese – silly, I know!

  11. Jennifer – I just used regular breakfast sausage because that is what I had on hand. I think Italian Sausage would be delicious too!

  12. I'll be trying this out soon! My mom has been talking about baked spaghetti for like the last week haha, I'll pass it along to her as well!

  13. I just tried your baked cream cheese spaghetti the other night, and it was so good. I will have to try this one too!
