  • 1 (16 ounce) package spaghetti

  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese

  • 2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese


  1. Cook spaghetti according to package directions.

  2. Cook onion and ground beef over medium heat until onions are translucent and meat is no longer pink; drain. Stir in the spaghetti sauce and seasoned salt; set aside.

  3. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs, Italian seasoning, Parmesan cheese and butter. Drain spaghetti add to egg mixture and toss to coat.
