This is a great recipe to make from scratch or an easy way to use up leftover spaghetti. Here’s how to make it.


1 pound lean ground beef
1 (16 ounce) jar of spaghetti sauce
1 pound spaghetti
1 cup ricotta or cottage cheese
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

Optional: If you want to make this recipe tastier try adding onions, peppers, and herbs.

Add 1 onion chopped, 1/2 green pepper chopped, 1 clove minced garlic, 1 teaspoon dried oregano, 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme, and 1/2 teaspoon dried basil to your spaghetti sauce.


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a large skillet cook the ground beef (if desired, sauté with onions and peppers). Once the ground beef is cooked, add spaghetti sauce (and any herbs) to the skillet and simmer on low.

While the sauce is simmering prepare the spaghetti. Cook the spaghetti until al dente (about 8-10 minutes). Then drain the spaghetti.

Mix sauce with the spaghetti. Spray 9x13 inch pan with cooking spray and transfer spaghetti mixture into pan.

Top the spaghetti mixture with 1 cup of ricotta or cottage cheese. Then top with shredded mozzarella cheese.

Bake in oven for 20-30 minutes or until cheese is melted.
