Betty demonstrates how to make Spaghetti Casserole Supreme. This is a hearty casserole made with spaghetti, Italian sausage, four-cheese tomato sauce, Parmesan cheese, cottage cheese, and mozzarella cheese.
|Uncooked spaghetti||16 Ounce (each piece of spaghetti broken into 4 pieces)|
|Italian sausage||1 1/2 Pound (cut into small pieces)|
|Chopped onion||1 Medium|
|Garlic powder||1 Tablespoon|
|Four||cheese italian sauce|
|Melted butter||2 Tablespoon|
|Grated parmesan cheese||1/2 Cup (8 tbs)|
|Cottage cheese||2 Cup (32 tbs)|
|Cooking oil spray||1|
|Shredded mozzarella cheese||24 Ounce|
In a large pot, bring water to a boil over medium/high heat. Add salt.
Place uncooked spaghetti pieces into the water and return to a boil.
Reduce heat and cook until al dente, about 8 minutes.
Drain and rinse, if desired, and set aside.
While the spaghetti is cooking, remove the casings from the Italian sausage and slice sausage into small pieces.
In a deep skillet, place the Italian sausage pieces, sprinkle garlic powder and chopped onion over medium/low heat.
Cook, stirring occasionally (and gently) until no pink is showing and sausage is browned. REmove excess grease.
Add Italian four-cheese sauce to the browned sausage and simmer for 20-30 minutes, until sauce has thickened slightly.
Remove from heat.
Place drained spaghetti in a very large bowl.
Add melted butter, beaten eggs, and grated Parmesan cheese.
Toss until spaghetti is coated.
Spray an 11-inch by 15-inch by 2-inch baking dish with cooking oil spray.
Place the cooked spaghetti mixture in the baking dish. Spread cottage cheese over top.
Pour Italian sausage with sauce over the cottage cheese layer.
Bake at 350 degrees (F) for 30 minutes.
Remove from oven and sprinkle shredded mozzarella cheese over top.
Place casserole back into a 350 degree (F) oven and bake an additional 10 minutes, until cheese melts and begins to brown.
Note: Turn oven to broil for the last minute or so, for best results.
Serve this casserole with Italian bread brushed with olive oil and sprinkled with Parmesan cheese and an Italian herb blend and lightly toasted.
