24 oz spaghetti
*32 oz (2 lbs) mozzarella cheese, grated
8 oz ricotta cheese
8 oz sour cream
1¼ cups half-and-half
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese , divided
1 tsp oregano

Cook spaghetti according to package directions, drain. Preheat oven to 350°.
In large bowl, stir together mozzarella, ricotta, sour cream, half-and-half, half the Parmesan cheese, oregano, basil, pepper, garlic, and salt. Add cooked spaghetti and toss until well coated. Pour into 9×13 pan lightly sprayed with cooking spray. Top with remaining Parmesan cheese. Cover with foil and bake 30 minutes.
While pasta is baking, prepare meat sauce. Brown Italian sausage in skillet. Drain, add spaghetti sauce and simmer. Remove pasta from oven. Cut into squares and top with meat sauce.
