I got this recipe from my aunt a long time ago, and it is still a huge hit with anyone I make it for. Serve with an extra side of hot spaghetti sauce, a green salad, and garlic bread.

  • Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook spaghetti in the boiling water, stirring occasionally, until cooked through but firm to the bite, about 12 minutes; drain.

  • Toss spaghetti with some of the Parmesan cheese and butter in a large bowl.

  • Layer about 1/3 of the spaghetti in the bottom of a 9x13-inch baking dish. Top with layers of sour cream and spaghetti sauce. Repeat layering until ingredients are all included. Top with mozzarella cheese and remaining Parmesan cheese and butter.

  • Bake in preheated oven until top is bubbling and browning on the edges, about 30 minutes.

This was good but I did add a lb of Italian sausage along with onions and garlic which is just what I do to almost everything but ice cream. As I read in a novel once I've never had a good meal that didn't start w/ chopping onions. Very picky son ate it for lunch several days. High praise indeed or it just happened to include his favorite things. Whatever he liked it. Oh yeah I didn't layer anything just mixed it all together. Easier. Read More

For me another shape of pasta would work better than spaghetti. I had to use fettuccine as it turned out I was out of spaghetti noodles. Stirring the sour cream into the pasta seemed to work better than layering. One jar of sauce wasn't enough - this really needs two jars or cut the pasta & sour cream in half. With a few minor changes this makes a hearty family style meal. Read More

We go to a restaurant nearby for their spaghetti pie. I always wondered how to make it. I think this is it! It turned out great but I think I'll add more sour cream next time. Read More

We loved it. I made it true to the recipe. I used left over noodles. I warmed them in the microwave with the butter on top. When the butter was melted I tossed the noodles until they were covered with butter. Then I put the parmesan cheese in and tossed again. I used left over spaghetti sauce. I successfully cut the recipe in half and baked it in a 9 by 9 pan. Read More
