My cream cheese and sour cream mixture curdled while cooking. Why?? It tastes good still...

I bake casseroles often for our church homeless ministry. I made this one recently and it was enjoyed by the recipients. I used full fat cream cheese and sour cream plus I added 4 ounces of cottage cheese because I had it on hand and this seemed to need a bit more umph. I added Italian seasoning and a teaspoon of jarred minced garlic to the spaghetti sauce. I mixed in 1/2 cup of mozzarella cheese to the cream cheese mixture because you can never have too much cheese, right? This is such a great recipe because it is really a launching pad for adding your tweaks. This is a keeper!

Another great baked spaghetti recipe from Taste of Home! I doubled the recipe and used full fat versions of cream cheese and sour cream. I did add a little extra sour cream to the cooked spaghetti to keep it moist. The green onions really added alot of flavor to the cream cheese and sour cream mixture. A cheesy, yummy dish that I will definitely make again. Everyone loved it! Served with a green salad. A keeper!

Personally I thought it was pretty bland. It’s easy to make but the taste is just ok. I wouldn’t make it again.

Just to make sure, it says :"Stir in the spaghetti sauce, salt and pepper; bring to a boil. " actually means in a separate pan other then the pot with spaghetti, is that correct??Bud

This was delicious! I used up some leftover “ unsauced” spaghetti because I always make too much and added an egg and Parmesan cheese to it. I skipped the cheddar cheese and layered fresh mozzarella and sprinkled fresh parsley on top. Finished at the end under the broiler for just a few minutes. I agree with others, reminded me of lasagna but better. Definitely a keeper!

This recipe reminds me of a favorite casserole that my step-mom would leave for us kids to warm up for dinner when I was a teen in high school. I must give this a try, so many memories ago.

I made this yesterday. I usually make it just as written the first time but I did not have ground beef so I used hot Italian sausage. Took the casing off, broke it up as it browned. Added the onion AND mushrooms that needed to be used. It turned out great. I agree with another reviewer, it's similar to lasagna. My only suggestion would be to spread the cooked spaghetti in the casserole pan while it's still hot. Allowing it to cool makes it stick together and is almost impossible to spread. Lesson learned ! I did add Italian seasoning to the meat sauce for more flavor, as suggested by another reviewers. Good recipe. Thanks, Patricia

Very good. Reminds me of a combination of lasagna and spaghetti mixed together and you come up with this. Don't be afraid to add seasonings to this to make it your own. Serve with a fresh tossed salad and garlic sticks.
