Baked Layered Spaghetti

I’m always looking for new Italian recipes because the Steele’s love anything Italian! I found this original recipe at but I made a few tweaks.


1 box (16 ounce) spaghetti
1 pound ground turkey or beef
1 (26 ounce) jar of spaghetti sauce
2 eggs
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon onion powder
1/3 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
4 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
2 cups small curd cottage cheese

1. Cook the spaghetti according to package directions
2. At the same time, brown the ground turkey/beef until it’s no longer pink
3. Stir in the spaghetti sauce, salt, and onion powder into the meat. Set aside
4. Whisk the eggs, Parmesan cheese, and butter in a large bowl together
5. Drain the spaghetti once it’s done
6. Combine the spaghetti and egg mixture, toss to coat
7. Place half the spaghetti mixture into a greased 13×9 baking dish
8. Top with half of the cottage cheese, followed by half of the meat sauce, and half of the mozzarella cheese
9. Repeat steps 7 & 8
10. Cover with foil and bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes
11. Uncover and bake 20-25 minutes longer or until cheese is melted
