This rich and creamy spaghetti pasta is perfect for a busy weeknight dinner.

I make this specific recipe quite often, because I normally have everything in my pantry and well, ground beef is a must in our house.

As this is a very filling meal, I only serve a crunchy green salad on the side.

However, it does happen that I use cream cheese instead of the ricotta, but I would then always use a low-fat cream cheese.

When I first saw this, I was thinking of my sister's "Lazy Lasagna." She makes a version with wagon wheel pasta, but the addition of sour cream in this one must make it super velvety. Yummm! #TastyTuesdays

Saw this on facebook and yummmm! I bet the ricotta makes it taste a little more like lasagne for sure.
