Baked Cream Cheese Spaghetti


1 pound of spaghetti
1 tablespoon of olive oil
1 pound of ground beef
1 small onion, diced
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 can (28 ounces) crushed tomatoes
1 teaspoon of dried basil
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon dried parsley
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes, optional
1/2 cup whipped cream cheese
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese
1/2 cup grated Monterey Jack cheese
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley leaves


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly oil a 9×13 baking dish or coat it with non-stick spray.
In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook pasta according to package directions; drain well.
Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add ground beef and onion and cook until beef is browned, about 3 to 5 minutes, making sure to crumble as it cooks; season with salt and pepper to taste. Drain off excess fat.
Stir in the crushed tomatoes, basil, oregano, parsley and red pepper flakes; season with salt and pepper to taste.
In a small bowl, whisk together the cream cheese and sour cream.
Add the pasta to the prepared baking dish and cover with the cream cheese and beef mixture; sprinkle with cheese.
Place in the oven and bake until bubbling and heated through, about 15 to 20 minutes.
Serve immediately, garnishing with parsley, if desired.
