Baked cream cheese spaghetti casserole

Original recipe is here. Thanks to Kathleen M for sharing this recipe.

I tweaked it to be more Simply Filling :) It ended up Simply Filling plus 1pp for the PC blue menu Parmesan cheese that is 1pp for 2 Tbsp!

Baked cream cheese spaghetti casserole Simply Filling +1pp

12oz uncooked whole wheat spaghetti
1 can of President's choice tomato sauce with basil that has no sugar
1 lb extra lean ground beef
2 tsp Italian seasoning
1 clove of garlic minced or garlic powder
1 package of Kraft 95% fat free cream cheese
1/2 cup of President's choice blue menu light Parmesan cheese

Preheat oven to 350
Brown the ground beef until cooked and drain any fat.
Stir in tomato sauce. Set aside.

Cook spaghetti noodles according to package. Drain and put in a large bowl. Add cream cheese, Italian seasoning and garlic. Stir until spaghetti is thoroughly coated with cream cheese.

Spray a 9x13 pan with non stick and spread small amount of meat sauce on the bottom. Top with the spaghetti mixture. Top with remaining tomato sauce. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese on top.

Bake for 30 minutes until bubbly.

Two thumbs up from the hubs :)
Next time I'd add sauteed mushrooms and light mozzerella instead of the Parmesan cheese!
