Reviews forFavorite Baked Spaghetti
"This was absolutely wonderful. I did add more sauce and more seasoning. It was not dry at all. This rates as one of my favorites."
"Good, but agree with many...it absolutely needs more sauce. Go with 2 jars. And, add some more Italian seasoning to punch up...unless you are serving to toddlers."
"Very good recipe, this is my second time using it. If u don't care for the cottage cheese you can replace it with ricotta very easily or leave it out all together."
"We loved this dish. The Grandsons prefer spaghetti with less sauce so it was perfect. It was more time-consuming (and more dirty dishes) than your basic spaghetti but we all really enjoyed it. I'll make it again."
"I love this recipe and have made it several times. HOWEVER !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! What is going on with TOH's website? A Taste of Home puts out my favorite cookbooks and recipes but every time I try to get a recipe from this site, the ads snap the screen back to the top of the page every 20seconds or so. It's infuriating and it happens on no other site!"
"Bland, dry & needs an overhaul. I wouldn't even consider using cottage cheese in any baked pasta dish. Yuck!"
"I love baked spaghetti. This recipe turns out nicely everytime. I wouldn't change a thing!!"
"My family loved this recipe. quick and simple to prepare. I followed the recipe exactly as it is written. It was the perfect amount of sauce for my family. Definitely will make again."
"I doubled the sauce in this recipe and it still wasn't enough. Very bland."
