HOW TO MAKE BAKED SPAGHETTI
Step 1: Brown the ground beef
Add hamburger to a large pan and heat over medium-high heat. Break apart with a spoon, then add in onions. Cook until they become soft, about 3 to 5 minutes.
Then add garlic and cook for 1 additional minute. Cook meat until browned. S&P to taste, then add in Italian seasoning.
Step 2: Add sauce and simmer
Add in spaghetti sauce and let simmer uncovered for about 10 minutes.
Step 3: Cook the noodles
Cook spaghetti noodles about 6 minutes, or until al dente. Do not overcook. Reserve 1 cup of water for pasta sauce and then drain. Add up to 1/2-1 cup of the water to the red sauce.
Step 4: Mix in remaining ingredients
Once noodles are drained, add in the cream cheese and toss together. Once it begins to melt, add in the cottage cheese, 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese and 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese. Then toss together with the sauce. Then press into a greased 9×13″ pan.
Step 5: Bake the spaghetti casserole
Add fresh basil and parmesan to the top of the casserole if desired. Then bake in the oven at 350°F for 30-40 minutes.
