It is getting a little cool outside so I thought it would be great to have a little comfort food for dinner tonight. As I was browsing Pinterest, this recipe caught my eye. Million Dollar Spaghetti? How could it not be delicious? Bonus, I had everything I needed to make this delicious dish. I'm going to let you in on a little secret; it did not disappoint! My youngest asked for seconds! That is unheard of in this house! Cheers to finding a recipe that's a keeper and cheers to fall!
Brown a pound of ground beef. Season it with salt and pepper, drain fat.
Meanwhile, boil spaghetti noodles (8 oz) until al dente.
Use a jar (in my case, a can) of spaghetti sauce. I always use Hunts from a can. It is the cheapest, but it totally worked for this recipe.
Mix in with the browned beef.
Combine cottage cheese, cream cheese and sour cream in a bowl.
Cut a few pieces of butter and place on the bottom of the baking dish. Layer 1/2 of the noodles over the butter.
Glop the creamy mixture over the noodles.
If you buy pre-bagged cheese, skip this part. Otherwise, shred the cheese.
Layer the other half of the noodles over the cream sauce. Slice a few more pieces of butter and dot the top.
Add meat sauce.
Again, spread so it covers the noodles.
Spread a generous amount of cheese over meat mixture.
See the lovely layers? Mmmmm.
Cook at 350 degrees for about 25 minutes. Serve with a green salad and crusty garlic bread. Seriously, so good. Seriously.
