Cream Cheese Spaghetti Casserole is chock full of tangy, light and delicious cream cheese as well as cottage cheese. These cheeses, mild but with a slightly sharp edge, serve up well against the more bland taste found in spaghetti. This recipe is also chock full of meat, sauce and plenty of good ingredients to keep your family satisfied. It is made in a single casserole dish, and then baked to bubbly and hot. Serve it with extra parmesan cheese on top, or grate and put some on the table. The strong and salty flavor will work well in this casserole dish.
Casseroles are great dishes. Sometimes everything can be prepared right in the casserole dish, making the meal a quick and easy one to construct. Other recipes, like this one, take longer to prepare and require some pre-prepatory work. Still, it is a quick dish to make, and one worth the effort. Here, the entire sauce is homemade, ensuring a rich and flavorful meal. The spaghetti and sauce are prepared first, then combined with cheese and other ingredients before being baked to perfection in the oven. If you like, make the sauce the day before, and you could even make the spaghetti the day before. It is important to not overcook the pasta, as overcooked pasta can cause sugar spikes quite similar to those that sugar creates. Cook spaghetti only until it is barely cooked through. Check the pasta often as it cooks. Remember, too, the pasta will cook a bit more in the oven.
Try this recipe when the weather starts to get cold. It is a filling and comforting food that every one in the family can enjoy, and is well suited to those days when you want to watch the ball game or hockey game, and friends and family have come together to watch.
