  • 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 and transfer to a large bowl.

  • Mix eggs, Parmesan cheese, and butter with the spaghetti to coat pasta completely; spread into the prepared baking dish. Spread cottage cheese over the spaghetti to cover completely. Spread spaghetti sauce over the cottage cheese; top with a layer of mozzarella cheese.

  • Bake until hot in the center, about 30 minutes.

Cook's Note:

Add cooked meat with the spaghetti, eggs, and Parmesan cheese for more protein.

This recipe is delicious as WRITTEN! Great for a large family gathering. To the reviewers criticizing this recipe questioning "why make this recipe instead of lasagne" and "this is a copy of a BHG recipe from 30 years ago shame!" Please don't leave negative comments and ratings about the recipe when you haven't make it-- also your malicious comments are TOTALLY out of line. Go make some sugar cookies and put a smile on your face! Read More

I made this last week and it made a TON of food. I gave a nice portion to a neighbor, and the other we ate every other night for a week. I used ricotta cheese, and I make my own sauce using Papa John's Pizza Sauce recipe, which is sweet, spicy, and perfect for baking. To Answer Angelina, the reason this is so much better in some ways than lasagna is that the pasta is delicate (I used Angel Hair) and it absorbs every delicious drop of sauce. It is simple to prepare, too, and with another dollop of sauce over it, tastes better the next day. To each her own, and buono appetito! Read More

I did use ricotta cheese instead of cottage cheese. Family preference. I did also added cooked ground beef as suggested. Finished off with a salad and italian bread. Fabulous. Thanks for an easy way to put a spin on an old favorite. Read More

I made this following recipe and ALL 3 kids loved it!! That rarely happens! I added a lb of gr. chuck but otherwise followed exactly. I thought to myself while making, surely this cant have much flavor...but it did. It was great. Definitely will be making again. If it can make every person in a family of 5 happy....it's a keeper in my book :) Read More

I've made this for years, using ricotta instead of cottage cheese!! I, sometimes add a little meat and make more than the 12 oz. though, because everyone wants seconds!! You can never have too much!! To the person who commented about "who doesn't cook lasagna noodles", I don't, and never have....just add extra homemade sauce!! Read More
