Spaghetti Casserole Recipe

We love Spaghetti at our house! This Spaghetti Casserole is easy and delicous. I make these ahead of time and keep them in the freezer for a quick dinner. The casserole goes straight from the freezer to the oven and bakes for 1 hour and 15 minutes at 350 degrees. Add some Itailian Bread and a salad and you have an easy dinner with minimal clean-up!

Spaghetti Casserole
(This recipe makes 2 casseroles and can be easily doubled to make 4)

  • 1 package Spaghetti

  • 16oz. Cottage Cheese

  • 8oz. Sour Cream

  • 1 lb. Ground Beef

  • 2 cups Shredded Mozzarella Cheese

  • 4 1/2 cups Spaghetti Sauce (homemade or from a jar)

  • 2 Casserole Dishes & 2 small ziploc bags


  1. Cook ground beef in a skillet until browned.

  2. Cook spaghetti according to package directions.

  3. Add cooked ground beef to warm Spaghetti Sauce.

  4. In a small bowl, mix together cottage cheese & sour cream.

  5. Add 1/2 the cooked spaghetti to each casserole dish.

  6. Spread 1/2 of the cottage cheese & sour cream mixture on top of the spaghetti in each dish.

  7. Top each casserole with the meat sauce.

  8. After the casserole cools, cover and place in the freezer (casserole will keep in the freezer for up to 6 months).

  9. Place 1 cup of Mozzarella Cheese in each of the ziploc bags and attach to the casserole cover.

To Heat the Casserole:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

  2. Remove cover from casserole and place in the oven for 1 hour.

  3. After 1 hour sprinkle 1 cup of shredded mozzarella cheese on top and bake another 10-15 minutes.

  4. Serve with Italian Bread and Salad.

(The square casseroles are the Spaghetti casseroles and the round are extra meat sauce for the freezer.)
