Here’s a twist on a popular recipe.

Beef Tetrazzini

1 lb. lean ground beef

1 medium onion, chopped

1 tsp. salt

2 tsp. Italian Seasoning

15 oz. can tomato sauce

8 oz. cream cheese, softened

1 cup cottage cheese

1/4 cup sour cream

1 green bell pepper, chopped

1 bunch green onions, chopped

8 oz. spaghetti

1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Preheat oven to 325°. Coat 9×13 pan with cooking spray.

Boil large pot of water and cook spaghetti according to package directions. Drain.

Brown beef and onion until beef is crumbly and onions softened. Drain off fat (if necessary). Add salt, Italian seasoning and tomato sauce.  Heat through.

In a medium mixing bowl, beat together cream cheese, cottage cheese, and sour cream.  Add green pepper, green onion and hot drained spaghetti.  Stir to combine. Spread in the bottom of the 9×13 pan.  Pour meat sauce over the top. Top with Parmesan cheese.

Bake for about 30 minutes or until bubbly.
