This yummy spaghetti casserole will be requested again and again for potlucks and family gatherings. It's especially popular with my grandchildren, who just love all the cheese. —Louise Miller, Westminster, Maryland

"A family Favorite! I cooked the meat when I brought it home from the store and froze it.

Then a few days later when I was ready to try the recipe it was so easy and quick to assemble. I will use extra sauce and cheese next time and invite a few friends over to share the meal with!"

"TastyTOM you're confusing weights and volumes. 16 oz of cottage cheese is more compact volume-wise than 16 oz of shredded mozzarella.

Hope that helps.

"Hi Louise Miller. Please explain how 2 cups gives you 16 ounces of cottage cheese but 4 cups gives you 16 ounces of mozzarella cheese. I mean, isn't 4 cups twice the amount of 2 cups? What am I not understanding? Thank you."

"This was just ok. I made as directed and it came out too dry for my taste. If I made it again I would add more sauce and see if that helps but as written this isn't something my family loved."

MY REVIEW

"For MtsBigMike, using melted butter mixed with the Parmesan cheese and eggs to coat the spaghetti will keep it coated with just enough oil that it doesn't absorb all the moisture from the spaghetti sauce and dry out while baking."
