- 2 pounds ground turkey or beef
- 2 medium onions, chopped
- 2 cans (one 15 ounces, one 8 ounces) tomato sauce
- 1 can (8 ounces) sliced mushrooms, drained
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon dried oregano
- 2 packages (7 ounces each) uncooked spaghetti

- 2 cups (16 ounces) 4% cottage cheese
- 1/2 cup sour cream
- 2 tablespoons minced chives
- 1/4 cup dry bread crumbs

- In a large skillet, cook beef and onions over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Add the tomato sauce, mushrooms, garlic powder and oregano. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.

When I make this dish, I top it with shredded cheddar instead of the breadcrumbs. We like this better.
My family loved this dish. I've made it several times-it makes a huge casserole!-and it's always all eaten. I do use my own homemade spaghetti sauce instead of the tomato sauce blend. This is great for potluck dinners.
Was not a hit in my house at all....
@ Curlybiscuit 1; which recipe do you like for baked spaghetti better?
This is an absolute favorite in our house! My kids request it all the time for their birthday dinner. I like to halve the main ingredients, but keep the cheese layer amounts the same. SO GOOD!
