  • 1 package (16 oz) thin spaghetti
  • 4 cups prepared spaghetti sauce
  • 1 cup small curd cottage cheese
  • 1/2 cup fat free sour cream
  • 1 package (12 oz) mozzarella cheese shredded


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  • Grease a 9×13-inch baking dish.
  • Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil. Stir in spaghetti and return to a boil. Cook until pasta is tender but still slightly firm, about 10 minutes. Drain well.

  • Mix cottage cheese and sour cream in a bowl.
  • Spread half the spaghetti with sauce into the prepared baking dish.
  • Spread the cottage cheese mixture evenly over the spaghetti.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until bubbly and the cheese is browned, 30 to 40 minutes.
