6 oz. spaghetti (or 3 cups cooked)
2 Tbsp. butter or margarine
1/3 c. parmesan cheese, grated
2 eggs, well beaten
1 c. cottage cheese
1 lb. ground beef or turkey
1 jar spaghetti sauce
1/2 c. mozzarella cheese

Cook spaghetti according to directions; drain. Stir butter into hot spaghetti. Add parmesan cheese and eggs. Pat spaghetti mixture into a buttered 10" pie plate (or 9x13 dish) to make the spaghetti crust. Spread cottage cheese over the crust. Brown ground beef and add jar of favorite spaghetti sauce. Pour over the cottage cheese (can be frozen at this point, if desired). Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Spread with mozzarella cheese and bake for 5 minutes more or until cheese has melted.
