My DH rarely raves about any food, but this.....
1 pound ground round
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
2 cans tomato sauce (8-ounce) with garlic
1 1/2 cups low-fat sour cream
1/2 cup chopped green onions
1/4 cup neufchatel cheese, softened
4 cups spaghetti (8 oz uncooked), hot, cooked
1 1/3 cups cheddar cheese, lowfat, shredded (about 5 oz)
Though it's really a deep-dish casserole, many Midwesterners lovingly
refer to this recipe as Spaghetti Pie. You can substitute plain
tomato sauce and add 1/4 teaspoon of garlic powder, if desired.
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Cook meat in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat until
browned, stirring to crumble. Drain well, and return meat to pan.
Stir in salt, pepper, and tomato sauce. Bring to a boil; reduce heat,
and simmer for 20 minutes. Combine the sour cream, green onions, and
cream cheese in a small bowl, and set aside. Place the spaghetti
noodles in a 2-quart casserole dish coated with cooking spray. Spread
the sour cream mixture over spaghetti noodles. Top with meat mixture.
Sprinkle with cheddar cheese. Cover and bake at 350 degrees for 25
minutes. Uncover; bake an additional 5 minutes or until cheese is
bubbly. Yield: 6 servings.

I must say I was a little leery about trying this recipe because of the mixed reviews but taking the complaints about a bland dish into consideration (and the ingredients I had on hand!) I made it tonight and it was delicious!! Here's what I added/substituted....
First my husband doesn't eat meat so I substituted Morningstar Farms Veggie Crumbles and sauteed mushrooms for the beef. I don't think this made any difference in taste. I eat meat and I couldn't tell the difference in this casserole.
Second, I added 2-3 cloves minced garlic, a few dashes red pepper flakes and 1-2 t. oregano to the cream cheese/sour cream/green onion mixture.
Finally, I didn't have tomato sauce, but I did have some jarred marinara sauce, so I used equal amounts (16 oz) of this. This made it even easier and it turned out great. Nothing bland about it!!
Served with the Sundried-Tomato Semolina Biscuits from a few issues (which were great too) this was a terrific and fast meal!

I think I'm the one who brought up Spaghetti Pie again recently... I put my input on an older post but I'll say it here, too. Like laughsandlaughs, I used Veggie Crumbles instead of ground beef. I did substitute pasta sauce for plain ol' tomato sauce, so I didn't really need any more seasoning, though it could have used diced tomatoes. I also thought there was quite a bit of sour cream/cream cheese, so I would cut that back next time. It was pretty good- my husband & I have been eating it all week!
