This is one of Sean's comfort foods. A.k.a. NOT low fat. His mom makes this for a lot of family functions.
This recipe makes a 9 x 13 pan. It's a lot of food and very tasty!
16 ounces of spaghetti- cooked in salted water and drained
6 TBSP of melted butter
1 cup of Parmesan
3 beaten eggs
1 small container of cottage cheese
1 lb of ground beef, browned (Sadie likes spaghetti and meatball pie, so I cut about 10-12 frozen meatballs in half and use those)
1 jar of spaghetti sauce
1 cup of shredded mozzarella
Mix the spaghetti noodles, butter, parmesan cheese, and eggs. Spread evenly over the bottom of a greased 9x13 pan. This will be the "crust" of your pie. Cover the crust with cottage cheese. Top the cheese with your ground beef or meatballs. Cover evenly with spaghetti sauce.
Bake uncovered at 350 for about 35 to 40 minutes, or hot and bubbly. Top with 1 cup of mozzarella cheese and bake until cheese is melted. I like to put it under the broiler and let it brown a bit.
Let sit for about 5 to 10 minutes before serving so it can set up.
