    Your million dollar spaghetti looks so good ..can t wait to make it I think it s because of the cream cheese in it .I love anything that has cream cheese in it .


  3. PatternMaker says

    Fill a pre-made pie shell with a layer of spaghetti coated with egg white and Parmesan, spread with a creamy mix of egg yolk, ricotta, parsley and mozzarella, spoon in a meaty tomato sauce, then top with mozzarella and bake for a sensational party dish.


  4. Gloria says

    I would never use cottage cheese in my spaghetti.I would use ricotta cheese..


    • Anita says

    This looks like a fantastic dish. I just made it and it’s in the oven now. I love all the ingredients but I added an egg to the cream mixture and mushrooms to the red sauce. I can’t wait to dig in. Thanks for sharing!


  13. Kelly Tovornik says

  19. Charlene Crandall says

    Just now made this with different pasta. No cottage cheese, but had everything else to make it. I also put peppers and mushroom in the pasta sauce. It’s baking now and looks so yummy! Thanks for the recipe!


  20. Darlene says

    More like million calorie spaghetti – you could eat a whole pizza and a cake with less calories.. That was just adding stuff to add stuff..


  21. Naomi Knox says

    This soinds delicious! Making this tonight … thanks so much for sharing.
    My Sweet Hubbie will love this!


  22. Tina says

    I do not like the sour cream or the cream cheese in this dish so I substitute ricotta or cottage cheese.I also put a couple of eggs in the cheese mixture. I may be weird because everyone else I know likes this recipe. I think it is pretty easy to play around with whatever cheese you like It will still be good.


  23. Dorothy says

    this recipe makes too much for one meal for my family. Could I freeze it?


  24. Laura says

    I changed it up a little by using turkey ground beef and it came out really good.


  25. Jessica says

    It came out horrible. (Don’t over cook spaghetti)


  26. Jolea says

    This recipe is one of my all time favorites and everyone that has tried it, LOVES IT! Thanks for sharing!!! 🙂


  27. Leigh Ann says

    This is delicious exactly how it is written. I have made it twice. Very creamy not dry at all like most spaghetti pies.


  28. Tina says

    I’m making this for the 2nd time. My family loves this dish. Thanks for sharing


  29. Linda Parks says

    I am looking forward to making this recipe, however, I am puzzled by the TABLESPOON of black pepper! Could this be a mistake? I have never seen more than half a teaspoon of black pepper in any recipe before. This seems to be an overload of pepper and my tongue is very sensitive (dry mouth). Could I have some clarification on this?


  30. Daniel Praught says

    I’ve made this recipe several times now.. and is perfect the way it is… with my own personal exception.. add a red pepper and some mushrooms, and one nice little chilli pepper.

    I also find if i use 24oz of sauce with additional peppers and mushroom, it makes two casserole dishes full, so I bake one, and freeze one uncooked.

    thanks again.. awesome recipe. the house favorite.
