Cuisine: Italian
Serves: 8 servings
  • 1 package (8 ounces) spaghetti
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 jar (14 ounces) spaghetti sauce
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • 3 ounces cream cheese
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 3 green onions, chopped
  • 1-1/2 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  1. Spray 9x 13 baking pan with cooking spray. Preheat oven to 350. Set out 3 ounces cream cheese to soften.
  2. Cook spaghetti according to package directions for al dente; drain. Pour into prepared pan and spread evenly across the pan.
  3. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook the beef, over medium heat until beef is no longer pink, 6-8 minutes. Stir occasionally until beef breaks into crumbles; drain.
  4. Add onion and garlic to ground beef. Stir in the spaghetti sauce, salt and pepper; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  5. In a small bowl, mix cream cheese and sour cream until blended; stir in green onions. In a greased 11x7-in. baking dish, layer the spaghetti, cream cheese mixture and meat mixture. Top with shredded cheese.
  6. Cover with aluminum foil. Bake at 350° for 25 minutes. Uncover and bake until cheese is bubbly, 5-10 minutes longer.
