Spaghetti Pie Casserole

This is SO, SO good!
The picture doesn't show the layer of sour cream and cream cheese, which is my favorite creamy and delicious! Not too much, just enough to add another layer of flavor.

 I saw this in the Feb./March Taste of Home magazine, and set it aside to make some night for supper.  I put it with the group of recipes called," ingredients I always have on hand." It also looked like one I could whip it up quickly if needed. It's always nice to have a stash of those on hand. 

And sure enough, just last night I was looking at my cupboards wondering what to make, when I thought of this recipe. I had everything to make it..... well almost everything.

The only thing I didn't have was the Monterrey Jack cheese, so I used Italian Blend and threw some Parmesan on top too, at the last minute.

We loved it!
