I called this Perfect Baked Spaghetti because I combined two of my favorite baked spaghetti recipes and made one great recipe. The "ultimate" if you will. This was crazy good. I wanted to eat the whole pan! We ate this for dinner and again lunch the next day.
This Perfect Baked Spaghetti is very easy to make. Start the spaghetti cooking. While the spaghetti is cooking, whisk together the eggs, parmesan, and melted butter. Toss that with the cooked spaghetti. Top the spaghetti mixture with a combination of cream cheese, sour cream, garlic, and Italian seasoning. Finally, top everything with some cooked Italian Sausage or ground beef and jarred spaghetti sauce. You can make it in advance and refrigerate until ready to bake.
