“My family requests this recipe every year for birthday parties and other events! It’s crowd- and family-friendly, as well as easy to make ahead and then refrigerate!”




  • cooking spray
  • 12 ounces spaghetti
  • 4 eggs, beaten
  • 2/3 cup Parmesan cheese


  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup cottage cheese, or more to taste
  • 1 (28 ounce) jar spaghetti sauce
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese, or to taste




  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Prepare a 9×13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook spaghetti in the boiling water, stirring occasionally until cooked through but firm to the bite, about 12 minutes; drain and transfer to a large bowl.
  3. Mix eggs, Parmesan cheese, and butter with the spaghetti to coat pasta completely; spread into the prepared baking dish. Spread cottage cheese over the spaghetti to cover completely. Spread spaghetti sauce over the cottage cheese; top with a layer of mozzarella cheese.
  4. Bake until hot in the center, about 30 minutes.
