My Mother in Law turned 85 Sunday so we surprised her with a party. I had to bring the main dish so we decided on baked spaghetti. I figured we would need two large pans.I also made some garlic bread to go with it. and we had a green salad.
Baked Spaghetti for a crowd.
2 pounds hamburger
1 cup chopped onions
4 1lb cottage cheese
8 cups shredded cheese
1 cup Parmesan cheese
½ cup oregano
1 teaspoon each of ground thyme, ground rosemary, ground marjoram.
1 Tbl. Salt
1 Tbl garlic salt
Large can of Tomato sauce (6 lb 10 oz)
2 16 oz packages of noodles ( spaghetti or fettuccine )
First I browned 2 pounds hamburger then added about a cup of chopped onions I used my frozen onions so it saved me chopping them.
Add a # 10 can of Tomato sauce ( 6 lb 10 oz ) .
While simmering spray some oil in your pans.
Cook your noodles I used 3 packages that was two much so next time I will use 2. I cooked them in my roaster since there was so much I just put it on two burners.
While the noodles are cooking put 3 small containers of cottage cheese in the food processor.
Process until smooth.
Drain cooked noodles
Add a layer of noodles.
of the cottage cheese mixture
Then add a layer of shredded cheese repeat this one more time.end with sauce on top then add a layer of gratted cheese.
Cover and bake at 350 for 1 hour. I forgot to get a pic of the finished dish.
You can use jar sauce if you want and I had to use fettuccine noodle instead of spaghetti because that was what I had .
