    HeatherFeather's Note:

    This fast, easy recipe is a real family pleaser! I have used this recipe for many years as my good old stand-by for potlucks and tailgate parties. I have also baked this recipe in two smaller pans, keeping one for my family and bringing the other over to a new mother or neighbor as a welcome gift. This is my version of one I found in a community cookbook called "Enough to Feed an Army." (NOTE: Updated the amount of the spaghetti, I also now use a smaller box of pasta in this, even though the original called for a 1 pound box)

      I have made this dish twice now, and both times it has been a success. To save time, I didn't cut up the cream cheese, and that worked out fine. My family loved it. I really enjoyed it also. I am not a spaghetti fan, but this was a dish my family and I could agree on.

      This is a simple tasty recipe that is similiar to traditional spaghetti. The flavor was unique in that the creamy layer had the onion/green pepper (I also added two cloves of garlic) flavor rather than the meat sauce. I did find it a bit of a stretch to spread the meat sauce into two separate layers in a 9x13-inch pan, and would consider using more ground beef and spaghetti sauce the next time around. I recently made a similiar casserole in which the spaghetti noodles were mixed with egg and parmesan cheese to bind them together. My husband started to compare the two, but after a bit of thought, he decided that the other was more like lasagna and this like spaghetti so he took back his comment about using something to bind the spaghetti noodles together. Thanks for the recipe it is a keeper in my house! :)

      This is similar to a spaghetti casserole that I make, I added some mushrooms to the sauce mixture and a little garlic. Served it with garlic bread and we all enjoyed, thanks for posting!
