1 9x13-inch casserole


  • cooking spray

  • 12 ounces spaghetti

  • 4 eggs, beaten

  • cup Parmesan cheese

  • 2 tablespoons butter

  • 1 cup cottage cheese, or more to taste

  • 1 (28 ounce) jar spaghetti sauce

  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese, or to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Prepare a 9x13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

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