My whole family loved this, even my three picky kids! My husband said it tasted like a restaurant quality meal. The only thing I did differently was mixed the sour cream in with all the other ingredients rather than layer it. I also added about a dozen quartered meatballs. This is definitely a keeper!


I used only a 46 oz jar of Prego mushroom spaghetti sauce and an entire block of cream cheese. This was easy, creamy, saucy, and delicious. I also made meat balls to go with it. I will add this to my regular recipe list, but will probably try fat free cream cheese and sour cream next time since it's so high in fat.


Quick and very simple recipe for a night when you are short of time. I followed the recipe exactly other than also adding a little pepperjack cheese.
