erole. Hearty casseroles are designed for that kind of work! Potlucks, large family gatherings… whatever your need, a casserole will be there for you.

How to StorePasta lasts in the fridge for about 3-5 days. Store it in an airtight container. When it is time to serve it, you can reheat it in a microwave or in an oven

Benefits of Cottage Cheese:

Cottage cheese is a curd cheese with a smooth texture. It is a healthy option packed with protein, too. Creamy and tasty ingredient to your amazing flavorful spaghetti. Recently, I added this type of cottage cheese to my breakfast, scrambled eggs, dipping sauces. The taste is so good that I became addicted! 

What Side Dishes Go With Spaghetti?

Salads are a great accompaniment to million dollar spaghetti. They are a cool and crisp contrast to the rich and hearty pasta. I like to serve panzanella salad or a light and refreshing cucumber salad with spaghetti. I also like to have garlic or cheesy bread with spaghetti. Some of my favorites are garlic knots and cheesy pull apart bread. (Source: www.dinneratthezoo.com)

Want to Make This Ahead and Freeze? (it Is the Perfect Gift for Anyone You Are Wanting to Gift a Meal Too!)

When I am making a pan to freeze I do a few easy things. First I start with a foil casserole pan, these are cheap and mean that if I am gifting this to someone they do not have to worry about returning a dish to me. Next, I follow the recipe up until the point of baking. At the point, I cover it with foil and label and date it. Place in the freezer for up to 3 months. If you are gifting this here are the thawing instructions: Remove a day ahead of time and place in the refrigerator to come to room temperature. If you don’t have time to thaw in the refrigerator, you can place it directly in the oven, but it will cook for 55-65 minutes. I still recommend removing the foil towards the end so that the cheese can melt completely. Easy peasy!
