MILLION DOLLAR ITALIAN CASSEROLE

MILLION DOLLAR ITALIAN CASSEROLE created by pammyowl

Similar to Million Dollar Spaghetti on FB and Pinterest. I reduced the butter (a lot), added a little more flavor, and altered the baking time since 2/3 content was already hot. Recipe goes together quickly if you coordinate the boiling, sauteing, mixing, etc. I prefer to use Paul Newman's Sockarooni or Roasted Garlic Pasta Sauce

  • While meat sauce is cooking, add softened cream cheese, sour cream, and cottage cheese to a medium size mixing bowl.

    5 for flavor, 4 for directions. No mention was made in the ingredient list of ground ( I am assuming ) sirloin, but it is listed in the instructions. How much meat? Oh well, I winged it and used 1 lb. Thanks for sharing! Made for my three chefs 2013
