This was floating around Facebook for a while before my mother-in-law sent it to me.  She tried it and changed a few things, and then we tried it and started changing a few things.  
It is really simple to put together, and the cheesy goodness brings a little something different than a traditional spaghetti dinner! 


  • 1 lb angel hair pasta
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 medium onion
  • 1/2 cup diced green bell peppers
  • 4 cloves garlic

  • Red pepper flakes to sprinkle on top 


  • Boil spaghetti noodles according to directions
  • While they are boiling, place the cream cheese in a bowl, cube it up
  • When the noodles are done, put them in the bowl with the cream cheese and toss it around to coat all the noodles
  • In a pan, brown your ground beef

  • Add some of the spaghetti sauce and toss it around
  • Layer the noodle mixture on the bottom of a 9x13 baking dish
  • Layer it about half way and pour half the sauce on top
  • Layer the other half of noodles and top it off with sauce
