Million Dollar Spaghetti

Million Dollar Spaghetti

I have made spaghetti for my family at least 1,000 times. Wanting to change things up a little bit I decided to make a recipe I saw on pinterest called million dollar spaghetti.

The recipe came from a blog called Being Grown up. The recipe was easy to follow and didn't take much more time to make than regular spaghetti, except that you need to bake it for about half an hour. I followed the recipe, except I added diced green pepper and onion to my hamburger this and some italian seasoning mix to the cream cheese mixture.I did forget to add the cheddar cheese on top, but I really didn't miss it, I think it was fine without it.

This dish is layered and reminds me of lasagna because of that. We all like the results, even Mr. Pickypants enjoyed this take on spaghetti. I am not sure why the name is million dollar spaghetti, it is quite good, I don't know if it is one million dollars worth, but I will make it again.


1 lb. of Ground Beef
1 can of Spaghetti Sauce
8 oz of Cream Cheese
1/4 cup of Sour Cream
1/2 lb. of Cottage Cheese
Whole Stick of Butter
8 oz. of Noodles
Bag of Sharp Chedder Cheese
First: Go ahead and put your over on 350! Boil those noodles!! While they are boiling go ahead and mix up the cream cheese, sour cream and cottage cheese!! Make sure that it is mixed up VERY well!
Then.. go ahead and cook that meat!  Make sure its good and brown and drain it! Then pour your spaghetti sauce over it!  Take a few slices of your butter and put them in the bottom of your casserole dish, Then layer HALF of the noodles in the bottom of the dish! Pour that nicely mixed up creamy mixture on top of the noodles.and SPREAAAAAD it all over!Then add the rest of your noodles and put a few slices of butter on top of those noodles. Now pour the red sauce and meat on top! and once again SPREEAAAAD. Now place that awesome casserole in your oven for 30 minutes! After those 30 minutes take the dish out and pour some chedder cheese on the top and put it back in  The oven for 15 minutes! Then your DONE!
