Baked Million Dollar Spaghetti

This recipe is a nice change from your usual spaghetti recipe.  You can use bottled sauce and that makes it even easier.  There are tons of choices in the jared sauce aisle in the grocery store.  Also Publix has it buy one get one free quite often too.  So it is a good idea to keep some in the pantry for one of those nights you want something easy.  This recipe isn't one of those 30 minute meals but it can be done in less than an hour.
A little fresh parm cheese on top and you are good to go.
 You will need 6 cups of sauce for this meal so you will need a big jar and maybe a little extra.
 Chop and saute  an onion.
 Add ground beef and brown.  Then drain fat off.
 While the beef is brown you can cook the pasta.  Cook one pound of pasta about two minutes shy of what the directions tell you.
 Drain the noodles.
 I put them back in the pan they cooked in.
 Add 5 cups of sauce to the noodles.
 Toss them around to coat well.
 Noodles all covered.
 Add 1 cup of sauce to the ground beef and onions.
 Stir well.
 Take 8 oz of softened cream cheese.
 Add 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese to the cream cheese.
 Mix well.
 In a 9x13 baking dish add half of the noodles to the bottom of the pan.
 Add the cream cheese and cheese mixture.
 Spread it out as best you can.
 I added a little grated parm on top.  You can't have too much cheese.
 Sprinkled around on top of the cream cheese mixture.
 Then add the remaining noodles on top.
 Now add the ground beef mixture on top of the noodles.
 Add about a cup of shredded mozzarella cheese on top.  I didn't measure the cheese. I wanted it covered well.
 Cover with foil.  Place in a preheated 350 oven and bake for 30 minutes.  Then uncover and cook for an additional 10 minutes.
Then serves with some additional parm cheese on top.
