1 (8 oz.) package spaghetti, cooked and drained
2 Tbsp. butter or margarine
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese, divided
1 (24 oz.) container ricotta cheese or cottage cheese
1 lb. ground beef
1 (28 oz.) jar chunky garden-style pasta sauce
1 (8 oz.) package shredded mozzarella cheese

Preheat oven to 400. Line a 13 x 9 x 2 inch pan with foil. Brown ground beef, drain. Set aside.

Combine spaghetti with butter; stir until butter melts and coats spaghetti. Add 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese; stir to coat.

Arrange spaghetti in an even layer in foil-lined pan. Spread ricotta cheese (or cottage cheese) over spaghetti. Sprinkle with 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese.

Add browned ground beef and pasta sauce and heat until bubbly. Spoon over cheeses. Top with Mozzarella cheese and remaining Parmesan cheese. Cover with foil. Bake 30 minutes.

Remove foil and continue baking for 15 minutes or until cheese is lightly brown. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.
