This recipe is posted all over Pinterest so I knew that I needed to try it. A few comments - I found it to be a little bland, so next time I'm going to use a very flavorful garlic marinara and I will add mushrooms to the sauce. I used more sauce than the recipe suggested, so as long as you use one of the large jars of marinara sauce, you should be fine. It was definitely simple and the leftovers were great!
Million Dollar Spaghetti
1 lb of ground beef
1 large jar of spaghetti sauce
8 oz sliced mushrooms
8 oz of cream cheese
1/4 cup sour cream
1/2 lb cottage cheese
1/2 cup butter (1 stick)
1 pkg spaghetti 16 oz
Grated mozzarella and parmesan cheese
Preheat your oven to 350°. Boil your spaghetti noodles until al dente (firm). Drain and set aside until ready to assemble.
Combine the cream cheese, sour cream and cottage cheese until well blended.
Brown your hamburger and when done, drain well. Combine the hamburger with your spaghetti sauce and mushrooms.
Put a few slices of butter into a 9×13 pan then pour half of your spaghetti noodles on top.
Take your cream cheese mixture and pour on top of the noodles. Spread well over noodles.
Pour the rest of the noodles on top of the cream cheese mixture. Put a few more slices of butter on top of the noodles.
Pour your spaghetti and meat sauce on top of your noodles.
Put it into the oven for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes, pour the desired amount of grated cheese on top and return to the oven for 15 minutes to allow cheese to melt. Slice and serve like you would lasagna.
