"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 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!"

"This is a great recipe! Highly recommend it! The only thing I did was add some Italian seasonings to the jar of sauce to pep it up. Will be making this again."

"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."
