16 ounces dried spaghetti

1 pound lean ground beef

1 pound Italian sausage

45 ounces spaghetti sauce (1 large jar, or 2 small jars)

8 ounces ricotta cheese

4 ounces cream cheese (softened)

1/2 cup sour cream

1 tablespoon Italian seasoning

2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese

freshly chopped parsley


Cook the spaghetti noodles to al dente per package directions. Once done, drain and set aside.

While the spaghetti cooks, brown the ground beef and Italian sausage over medium heat. Once it is done, drain then mix together with the spaghetti sauce.

In a medium bowl, combine the ricotta cheese, softened cream cheese, sour cream, and Italian easoning. Mix until smooth.

In a 9x13 casserole dish, spread a thin layer of sauce over the bottom. Add half the spaghetti noodles on top of the sauce. Then spread evenly over the noodles half of the meat sauce, half of the ricotta mixture, and half of the mozzarella cheese. Repeat these layers with the remaining spaghetti, meat sauce, and cheese.

Bake at 375˚F for 40-45 minutes or until the edges are bubbly and the casserole is hot throughout.

Garnish with fresh parsley and serve warm.
