3 Cheese Baked Spaghetti

I am not usually a fan of baked spaghetti/pasta. But I did seem to order it out from a restaurant when we lived in our first apartment and it was quite tasty then! Little did I really know how easy it was to make! This one peeked my interest...more so for that fact that it was simple AND it involved 3 cheeses! I did double the original recipe to fit into a 9x13 pan.

3 Cheese Baked Spaghetti- shared from Tammy's Recipes
1 lb spaghetti
1 26 oz jar spaghetti sauce
2 cups cottage cheese
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup shredded parmesan cheese(omitted)
1 cup cheddar cheese
*optional: ground meat, sausage, or chopped cooked veggies

Bring water to a boil and cook spaghetti according to the package. Drain. Mix in cottage cheese, mozzerella, and parmesan. Place into greased 9x13 inch pan. Top with sauce and cheddar cheese. Place in 350 degree oven for 45 mins to 1 hour until heated through.
*If using meat/veggies, layer on top of spaghetti mixture before the sauce. This does freeze well, but under cook the spaghetti just a bit as it will finish cooking in the oven.

**We did really like this and we used some crumbled italian sausage in it and some shredded zucchini. The boys also enjoyed it! Sorry no picture we ate it all before I remembered to take one!


  1. This looks delicious! My kids would love it, thanks!

  2. I love baked pastas - this is right up my alley!

  3. I have this in the oven right now. Can't wait for supper!
