"Used 24oz. pasta sauce and a little italian seasoning but made it as directed the rest of the way. Would not fit in 11x7" pan, used 13x9" and it was perfect. Took to a pot luck and everyone loved it ! Keeper recipe."

"Yum! Loved this recipe! Very easy to make and especially tasty to eat. I also used a whole jar (24 oz) of spaghetti sauce and it seemed just right, so don't know what it would have been like with the smaller amount."

"Great recipe! Substituted 1/2 lb groud turkey and 1/2 lb hot italian sausage. Used linguine instead of spaghetti noodles. Also added parmesan cheese and italian parsley. Delicious!! Turned out great. Definitely will make again as soon as possiible."

"My family likes my version better. This one has too much cheese. I know...you can never have enough cheese, right? But this one does to us. Omit the cream cheese and green onions. Use shredded mozzarella vs monterey jack & cheddar. Make sauce and cook noodles as written. Whisk an egg with garlic salt and dried parsley flakes. Add cooked, drained noodles, that have been cooled slightly so egg doesn't set up, to egg mixture. Grease a casserole dish. Spread noodle mix in casserole dish. Spread sour cream over noodles. Add spaghetti sauce on top of sour cream. Add shredded mozzarella on top of sauce. Bake as directed in this recipe. Let stand 10 minutes to set. Enjoy!"

"Very good alternative to just regular spaghetti. I used a whole 24 oz jar of sauce, and glad I did because I think it had just the right amount. I didn't have any green onions, so I just added some dried minced onion instead. Lastly, I decided to add the cheese at the end when I uncovered it. Figured it would have just stuck to the foil anyway."

"This recipe is kid friendly. It also would make a great Pot Luck and its perfect for left over spaghetti. I did tweak it and used some items that I had on hand. I only made 1/2 a recipe. It worked just fine. I did not use all of the extra cheese on top. I seasoned the cooked spaghetti with some parm cheese and I used sausage. I gave it a 4 star rating simply because I did tweak it quite a bit. I too added some additional spices. Its not only easy its very tasty. Little mess and it goes a long way.

"Maybe make again. Substituted hot turkey Italian sausage. Cheese content makes me unable to partake, so hubby said it tasted okay. He did say it looked like slop, but it's not the first time my cooking rated that critique. Aren't you glad you're not me? This time I used grass fed ground beef & black bean spaghetti noodles. Hubby undecided on the taste as he's not too hungry."
