This is a kid pleaser and is a great weeknight meal. I've made this the night before to pop in the oven after work. Cut calories and fat by using light cheeses, ground turkey and whole wheat spaghetti.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Shell: Cook spaghetti according to package directions: drain.
  2. Stir in butter or margarine, Parmesan cheese, and eggs.
  3. Form spaghetti into a "crust" in a 10 inch pie plate.
  4. Sauce: Brown ground beef and onions, drain.
  5. Add spaghetti sauce and simmer 5 minutes.
  6. Filling: Spread cottage cheese over bottom spaghetti "crust". Top with half the mozzarella cheese and then the sauce mixture.
  7. Bake in 350* oven for 30 minutes, topping with the remainder of the cheese during the last 10 minutes of baking.

Quick and easy. I added crushed red pepper to mine and italian seasoning to the bottom layer and top after adding the cheese.
