I got this recipe from my aunt a long time ago, and it is still a huge hit with anyone I make it for. Serve with an extra side of hot spaghetti sauce, a green salad, and garlic bread.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 pound spaghetti
  • ¼ cup butter
  • ½ cup Parmesan cheese, or to taste
  • 1 (16 ounce) container sour cream, divided
  • 1 (28 ounce) jar spaghetti sauce (such as Ragu® Meat)), divided
  • 1 (8 ounce) package shredded mozzarella cheese, divided

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. 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.
  3. 3 Toss spaghetti with some of the Parmesan cheese and butter in a large bowl.
  4. 4 Layer about 1/3 of the spaghetti in the bottom of a 9x13-inch baking dish. Top with layers of sour cream and spaghetti sauce. Repeat layering until ingredients are all included. Top with mozzarella cheese and remaining Parmesan cheese and butter.
  5. 5 Bake in preheated oven until top is bubbling and browning on the edges, about 30 minutes.

  1. Absolutely love this! I added a layer of very lean ground beef sautéed with onions that I needed to use up. it was awesome with the ground beef and onions but it was awesome anyway! Highly recommend this!
  2. My family loved it. Very easy to make too.
  3. We loved it. I made it true to the recipe. I used left over noodles. I warmed them in the microwave with the butter on top. When the butter was melted I tossed the noodles until they were covered with butter. Then I put the parmesan cheese in and tossed again. I used left over - Read more ...
  4. Very bland would not make again.
  5. This was good, but I did add a lb of Italian sausage along with onions and garlic, which is just what I do to almost everything but ice cream. As I read in a novel once, I've never had a good meal that didn't start w/ chopping onions. Very picky son ate it for lunch - Read more ...
  6. I added ground beef and some black olives and a bag of Mexican blend cheese to the layers.
  7. We go to a restaurant nearby for their spaghetti pie. I always wondered how to make it. I think this is it! It turned out great, but I think I'll add more sour cream next time.
  8. For me, another shape of pasta would work better than spaghetti. I had to use fettuccine as it turned out I was out of spaghetti noodles. Stirring the sour cream into the pasta seemed to work better than layering. One jar of sauce wasn't enough - this really needs two jars or cut the pasta - Read more ...
