Baked Spaghetti with Cream Cheese & French Fried Onions

This post may contain affiliate links. See my full disclosure for further details.

I have been looking for a very long time for a baked spaghetti dish that is more than just spaghetti and sauce thrown into a casserole dish.  This is it!  I’m not sure if it’s the cream cheese or French fried onions that make me love it so much, but I suspect it’s a little bit of both. And let’s be honest. Even though the recipe calls for a small can of French fried onions, you’re going to want a big can, because you know you’re going to eat half of it while the spaghetti bakes. Just trying to help you plan ahead my friends.

This meal is definitely a crowd-pleaser, and it’s easy to adapt to your own tastes.  Leave out the meat, or throw in some peppers and mushrooms.  Or try replacing the ground beef with Italian sausage. Just don’t leave out the cream cheese and French Fried Onions!

  1. Wow, cream cheese and french onion rings sound divine in this dish!

  2. This has comfort dish written all over it! It looks great!

  3. Pinned it! Must try. Yum!

  4. Looks so good. I love those onions from a can. I could make a meal just out of those.

  5. Ummm yes please and right now! 🙂

  6. I’m going to thank you ahead for a night of lying flat out on my couch, with my hands rubbing my belly. Delicious. This is the kind of Sunday night dinner with a movie that me and my man will go for in a big way. I’m gonna throw in some red pepper flakes and a little jalapeno too. Thanks for the inspiration! GG

  7. This was a big hit at my house, I will definitely be making it again.

  8. wow! this looks delicious! as does all your pictures of those yummy recipies. I came here from your OTHER blog(!) and am following here too.

  9. made this last night and had actually planned a different dinner for my husband who doesn’t really like spaghetti. time was short and he was hungry, so he ate this. and went back for seconds. and asked for the leftovers to be packed away for his lunch today. 🙂 LOVE those onions on top!!

  10. I made this over the weekend and my toddler and my preschooler (who eats nothing) are still eating it happily – thanks!!!

  11. This is definitely one of the tops on my favorite spaghetti recipes! I loved the cream cheese – I was already used to putting sour cream into red sauce, but I loved the more creamy texture of the cream cheese. The French fried onions were the bomb! Thank you for sharing the recipe 🙂
