So I’m sure you have noticed by now that I LOVE pasta.
My recent pasta recipes over the last couple of weeks have gone viral several times! You need to check those out as well!!
NOW, back to this Million Dollar deliciousness you see before your eyes!
This has been floating around the internet and when i checked some of the recipes out, I found it amazing that this is EXTREMELY similar to my Lasagna recipe, I have been making for years that everyone raves about!
Its pretty easy to throw together too!
I have also noticed that this is MUCH easier than my lasagna recipe and the flavors are basically the same!
The mixture of sour cream, cream cheese and cottage gives it that MILLION DOLLAR flavor! (shh thats why everyone loves my lasagna! lol )
I have done this with many types of pasta, but spaghetti is its ‘signature’ type most people use, though you can use ANY that you’d like 🙂
Spread it on before tossing!
Yes, I love my cheese, don’t judge 😉
