I made this for two reasons. 1) I got some serious couponing done this morning and cleaned up on spaghetti sauce and 2) I'm trying to get my younger child to eat more food and this was easy enough for him to help cook. I used jarred sauce but I gussied it up with extra spices, fresh onion and garlic and a glug of red wine. I used only a little fresh parmesan on the top and lowfat cottage cheese/mozzerella. So it wouldn't be too dried out--what I did was eliminated the butter and in a big bowl, I mixed up the spaghetti, sauce, cottage cheese and half the shredded cheese, and before putting it in the oven, I sprinkled it with the remaining cheese and a little fresh parmesan. Really freaking yummy. This made a huge 9x13 pan full but only a little remains. I'm glad I mixed it all together because I think it would have either been too greasy or too dry had I not. It was just right. This will make excellent spaghetti/garlic bread sandwiches tomorrow. The family all told me this is a keeper! (And, if you're wondering, the little guy loved it, too!) Next time, I might try to sneak more veggies in and cut back on the pasta. This is so cost-effective for feeding large families (or three very hungry boys).
