Ingredients

  • 16 ounces spaghetti
  • 1/2 pound ground beef
  • ½ pound ground italian sausage
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 32 ounces spaghetti sauce
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 5 tablespoons butter melted
  • 1 cup small curd cottage cheese
  • 1 cup ricotta cheese
  • 4 cups shredded mozzarella cheese divided
  • Fresh Basil for garnish

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Lightly grease a 9x13-inch baking dish, and set aside.
  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil, and cook spaghetti. You want it al dente, about 12 minutes cooking time. Then drain.
  • While spaghetti cooks, heat a large skillet over medium heat, and add onions, garlic, ground beef, and sausage. Cook until sausage and ground beef are browned and onions are soft, about 7-10 minutes.
  • Drain excess grease off, and then combine meat mixture with spaghetti sauce, and set aside.
  • Combine ricotta cheese and cottage cheese, set aside.
  • In a large bowl, whisk eggs, Parmesan cheese, and butter together.
  • Stir cooked spaghetti into the egg mixture.
  • Assemble baked spaghetti by layering: ½ the spaghetti mixture into baking dish. ½ the ricotta mixture, ½ the meat sauce, and ½ the mozzarella. Repeat for a second layer to use up the rest of the ingredients.
  • Cover with aluminum foil.
  • Bake in preheated oven for 40 minutes.
  • Remove foil and continue baking for about 20 minutes, until the mozzarella cheese is melted and lightly browned.
  • Remove from oven, garnish with fresh basil and serve!
