  • 1 (16-ounce) package spaghetti
  • 1 pound ground beef 80/20
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon garlic minced
  • 1 pound Italian Sausage
  • 1 1/2 cups yellow onion, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
  • 2 (24-ounce) jars tomato and basil sauce or marinara sauce

  • 3 cups mozzarella shredded, divided
  • 1 cup parmesan shredded


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9X13 inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.

  • Add the onion, garlic, and Italian seasoning to the skillet and saute on medium-low until onions are translucent. Pour into the pasta pot.
  • Pour the tomato basil sauce, sour cream, 1 cup mozzarella, and parmesan into the pasta pot and fold until everything is evenly combined and all the pasta is well coated in sauce.
  • Pour the pasta into the prepared baking dish and sprinkle the top evenly with the remaining mozzarella. Bake in preheated oven until bubbly, about 25-30 minutes. Sprinkle top with parsley and serve.
