Deep South Eats: Baked Spaghetti

What is better than spaghetti, meat sauce, and delicious cheese?.......Not very much. While this amazing Baked Spaghetti is not something to be consumed every day (no matter how much you desire) it is a perfect dish to serve for company or large groups of people. It is filling and satisfying while maintaining the fulfillment that comes with comfort food. People will be coming back for seconds and thirds and no one will be disappointed.
  • 1 16-ounce package of spaghetti
  • 1 pound ground beef (choose the leanest you can to cut down on fat and greasiness)
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 26-ounce jar meatless spaghetti sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon seasoning salt (I always resort to Lawry's)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 5 Tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2 cups small curd cottage cheese (I used low-fat and had great results)
  • 2 cups mozzarella cheese
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Cook spaghetti according to package directions.
  • Meanwhile, in a large skillet, brown ground beef and onion until beef is no longer pink, drain. Stir in spaghetti sauce and seasoning salt allow to heat through over low heat.
  • In a large bowl, whisk eggs. Add in Parmesan cheese and butter and whisk together.
  • Drain spaghetti and add to egg mixture, tossing to coat.
  • Place half of spaghetti-egg mixture in a lightly greased 9 x 13 casserole dish. Top with half of cottage cheese followed by half of the meat sauce and half the mozzarella cheese. Repeat the layers in the same order.
  • Cover and bake for 40 minutes. Uncover and bake for 20-25 minutes or until cheese is melted.
