This week a recipe was passed on to me by my good friend T (thanks T, you rock!).
I haven't had a chance to try it yet but she assures me it got rave reviews and she would not say that if it were not true. T keeps it real, y'all.
Spaghetti Pie Casserole
1 pkg (8 oz) spaghetti
1 lb. ground beef
1 small onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 jar (14oz) spaghetti sauce
½ tsp salt
¼ tsp pepper
3 oz. cream cheese
1 cup sour cream
3 green onions, chopped
1 ½ cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese
1. Cook spaghetti according to package directions, drain well. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook the beef, onion and garlic over medium heat for 6-8 minutes or until beef is no longer pink, breaking up beef into crumbles; drain. Stir in spaghetti sauce, salt and pepper; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
2. In a small bowl, mix cream cheese and sour cream until blended; stir in green onions. In a greased 11x7 baking dish, layer the spaghetti, cream cheese mixture and meat mixture. Top with shredded cheese.
3. Bake, covered at 350°F for 25 minutes. Uncover; bake for 5-10 minutes longer or until the cheese is bubbly.
If you try it, let me know what you think of it!
