So being a mom of four and having to make my food budget stretch, I love it when I can make simple, easy, cheap AND nutritious meals for my family. Winner, winner, spaghetti dinner!
1 pound spaghetti thin or regular
1 pound Italian sausage or ground beef
1 jar of spaghetti sauce
4oz cream cheese softened
3-4 cups mozzarella cheese
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Bring a pot of water to a boil, add the noodles.
While the water boils and the noodles cook, brown the meat in a pan. Drain the fat.
When the meat is cooked add the sauce and let it simmer for a couple of minutes.
Drain the pasta just short of al dente, as it will cook a little more when you bake it.
Return the noodles to the pan and add the meat mixture and the cream cheese. Stir until well combined.
Pour into a 9×13 pan, top with mozzarella and bake at 350 for about 10 minutes or until the top is melty and golden. Serve with a salad or steamed veggies. Enjoy!
