Spaghetti is one of those dinners that will never get old and will always be delicious. Baked Spaghetti is a recipe that gives a new take on the classic that ups the cheese factor and is just as yummy.
You just can't go wrong layering pasta with meat sauce, and adding cottage cheese for a texture that will remind you of a fancy lasagna. Give this a go for a quick and easy weeknight meal that will give some amazing leftovers for lunch the next day (if you even have any left!).
