This baked spaghetti pie with four cheeses is super easy to make and gets huge flavor from FOUR different cheeses.
Baked spaghetti has always been a hit at my house, and this version is our favorite. The four cheeses make the difference, adding a complex, rich flavor to the baked spaghetti that makes it taste out of this world.
Baked spaghetti is easy to make using any spaghetti sauce of your choice. The sauce specified in the recipe is super easy, but sometimes I use my favorite spaghetti with meat sauce instead. When I do this, I only follow the recipe for the noodles and then pour my own sauce over them after they are baked.
The cream cheese with chives adds huge flavor to the noodles and keeps them from drying out during baking. Cottage cheese (or ricotta) also adds more creamy rich flavor to the noodles. The other cheeses~parmesan & mozzarella~take the dish over the top. The finely shredded Italian blend cheese is my favorite, but plain shredded mozzarella works just fine.
Baked spaghetti pie is a great dish to take to a friend who needs a meal. If you make it ahead, prepare the sauce and keep in a separate container. Prepare the noodles and press into a pan, but don’t bake. Take the sauce and noodles to the friend with instructions on how to bake. Throw in a loaf of crusty Italian bread and a salad, and you’ve blessed them with a fabulous meal.
I’d love to hear back from you if you make this. Comments are welcome, so please let me hear from you! Thanks so much for stopping by. Be blessed, and stay savvy!!!
