"Cottage cheese is the secret to the sauce for this hearty main dish that my family calls 'Norwegian spaghetti'," says Denise Baumert of Dalhart, Texas.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup sliced green onions
  • 1/2 cup sliced celery
  • 1 can (4 ounces) mushroom stems and pieces, drained
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 8 ounces spaghetti, cooked and drained
  • 3 cups cubed fully cooked ham
  • 2 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese, divided
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 cup 4% cottage cheese
  • 1 cup frozen cut green beans, thawed
  • 1 jar (2 ounces) diced pimientos, drained
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper

Directions

  1. In a large saucepan or Dutch oven, saute onions, celery and mushrooms in butter until tender. Add the spaghetti, ham, 1-1/2 cups Monterey Jack cheese, sour cream, cottage cheese, beans, pimientos, garlic salt and pepper; mix well.
  2. Transfer to a greased shallow 2-qt. baking dish. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 20 minutes; sprinkle with remaining Monterey Jack cheese. Bake 10 minutes longer or until bubbly and the cheese is melted.
