Weight Watchers Million Dollar Spaghetti Recipe
Since Don and I have started to try to lose weight, I have been taking recipes that are traditionally high in fat and calories and making them lighter. A lot of them I have been able to make taste amazing, as good as the regular recipes, and no one would know the difference. Million Dollar Chicken Spaghetti is one of those recipes.
What Does Million Dollar Spaghetti Mean?
This baked spaghetti is so good, it's worth a million dollars. And you know what, it really is. It resembles a lasagna casserole but so much better. The combination of sauce, 4cottage cheese, cream cheese, and Greek Yogurt makes a deliciously creamy tasting sauce.
Can you Freeze Million Dollar Spaghetti
Yes. You can freeze Million Dollar Spaghetti. If you plan to free the spaghetti, you want to add a little more sauce. The noodles tend to soak it up. If you are using the noodle alternatives, you won't need the extra sauce.
Can you Make Million Dollar Spaghetti without Cottage Cheese
You can make it without. You can substitute ricotta cheese. I like the cottage cheese in this because it is lighter. Don't worry if you HATE cottage cheese. You can't taste it. Everything else masks the flavor. I personally have always thought cottage cheese was nasty, but I always put it in my Million Dollar Chicken Spaghetti.
