Delicious Baked Spaghetti Casserole – spaghetti, egg, parmesan, cottage cheese, sausage/hamburger, crushed tomatoes, tomato paste, spices and mozzarella – SOOO good! Baked pasta topped with a quick homemade sauce. Makes a great freezer meal!
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!
