Million Dollar Baked Spaghetti

Preheat oven to 350

What you need:

  • ½-3/4 lb. ground beef (I use the frozen kind that comes in the tube from Aldi)
  • 1 jar of spaghetti sauce (I use the prego in a jar, the Meat kind is good or the Garlic Herb, or if you have the homemade kind)
  • 8 oz cream cheese (softened, I let mine sit out all day)
  • ¼ cup sour cream
  • ½ cup parmesan cheese
  • Splash of milk
  • Whole stick butter
  • Box of spaghetti noodles
  • Shredded Cheddar Cheese

What you do:

  • First, brown and drain the hamburger meat
  • Add the spaghetti sauce to the drained meat
  • While the meat and sauce is simmering, boil your spaghetti noodles
  • While your noodles are boiling, use your mixer to mix the cream cheese, sour cream, parmesan cheese, and splash of milk. You want to add just enough milk to make the mixture creamy and a little bit spreadable
  • Next, cut half of the stick of butter into small pieces and set the pieces all over the bottom of your 9×13 baking dish
  • Put half of the drained noodles on top of the butter
  • Spread the sour cream/cream cheese/parmesan cheese/milk mixture on top of the noodles
  • Then, put the other half of the drained noodles on top of that mixture
  • Use the rest of the stick of butter to cut into small pieces and set the pieces all over that layer of noodles
  • Once you’ve done that, put the spaghetti sauce and meat mixture on top, and make sure to spread it all over the top
  • Bake for 25 minutes, sprinkle as much cheddar cheese on top as you want, and bake for another 10 minutes.
  • Serve immediately (although it’s great leftover all week)
