photo by Little_Sister
- Ready In:
- Pre-heat oven, or toaster oven, to 350 degrees.
- Remove sausage from casings, crumble and brown in a frying pan until cooked through. Drain all oil from the sausage.
- Mix the jar sauce with the sour cream. Ladle 1/4 cup of the sauce into the bottom of a 8x8, 9x9 or 10x10 baking dish. Top with 2 tsp of the fresh grated parmesan.
- Meanwhile, cook spaghetti according to package directions, drain and toss with sausage, red pepper flakes, the remaining spaghetti sauce, 1/4 cup of the Parmesan cheese and 1/2 cup of the Italian cheese blend.
- Place the spaghetti mixture on top of the sauce in the baking dish. Place the cheese mixture on top of the spaghetti.
- Finish off with remaining cheese mixture on top.
- Place baking dish in the oven for 20-25 minutes. Allow to cool for 10 minutes before serving with a crusty bread.
- NOTE: The larger the dish you use, the thinner your recipe becomes in height. An 8x8 baking dish will yield a 3in high pie, whereas a 10x10 dish will yield a 2 inch high pie. You can also make this recipe with leftover spaghetti from a previous meal. Simply make sauce with the sour cream and mix with your spaghetti as in STEPS 3 & 4. Top off as in STEP 6 and bake as directed in STEP 7.

This was delicious! I only used 1/2 lb of turkey sausage and the "powdery" parmesan cheese because I am trying to stretch our food budget a little farther these days. It was still delicious and my 4 kids and 2 of their friends cleaned their plates and asked for seconds. I will definitely make this again. Thanks for the recipe!
Nice change from the typical spaghetti and meat sauce! Had to modify some because of what I had on hand...instead of 16 ounces of turkey I had 19 ounces of regular sweet Italian sausage and instead of a 24 ounce jar I had a 32 ounce jar of spaghetti sauce so I increased everything else just a bit and baked in a 9 x 13 baking dish. Served with a mixed green salad and garlic knots for an easy and really tasty dinner.
I used spicy Italian sausage, and this was very easy, tasty, and filling. I scaled the recipe in half, used a 1-1/2 qt oval casserole dish, and it would have adequately served 4 people. <br/>Clearly, with a nice homemade sauce it would have been 5 stars, but as an easy weeknight dish, it was really good.
Quick, creamy, comforting, and satisfying! Since we've never been to the restaurant and needed to replicate a specific flavor, I used Francisco Rinaldi, which is the sauce I had on hand. I left out the red pepper flakes to keep it cool for the kiddos. My entire family loved this dish! I loved that it was made with sausage instead of beef, although I may someday try it with beef as well. Thanks for posting a delicious family friendly meal!
