I had to prepare a luncheon for 150 and used this recipe as one main dish. I doubled the recipe and used 5 crock pots.I grated and shredded the cheeses the day before and measured out zip lock bags for each crock pot. That morning it only took a few minutes to assemble the ingredients and cook the spaghetti. I had more compliments on this dish than on anything else I've ever served. I've another event for this group in April and I've benn asked to "please please please include that spaghetti thing in the crock pot." Read More

This definitely has a good flavor. My husband and I loved it - the kids say no though. I was so glad to read the comments before I made it though cuz it helped in preparing it better. Used 3 cans of diced tomatoes for liquid and a whole container of sour cream. Less cheese too. Read More

This was great comfort food. I took the advice of others and didn't add so much cheese even though cheese is my favorite food. I also added a can of cream of mushroom soup and 3/4 of the actual needed sour cream. I only cooked it on high for 1 1/2 hours cause it did start to burn but it gives it a nice little crunch. I will make this again and probably cook it on low and stir it occasionally to keep it from burning on the sides. I will also add more spinach cause I really like spinach. Thanks for the recipe- I LOVED it!! Read More

I made this dish in the OVEN instead of the crockpot and it worked out well although I did make a couple changes. I left out the fried onions increased the garlic to 4 cloves finely chopped and added hot italian sausage. After combining everything I baked it in a grased casserole dish for 40 min at 400 degrees (topping w/ extra cheese for the last 10 minutes). It's a keeper recipe done this way and I'd recommend trying it in the oven if the crockpot didn't work out. Read More

Very yummy! Adjusted this to: 2 eggs 1/2 sour cream 1 can cream of mushroom soup chopped onions instead of fried and used six cheese Italian blend instead of the cheeses listed. Oh and used bowtie pasta instead. I also added some salt pepper basil and oregano. I think next time I'll add some fresh tomatoes. I bet that would be awesome. I followed another reviewer and baked it for 40 minutes at 400 instead of slow cooker. Read More
