Preheat the oven to 375°F.
Prepare the spaghetti according to the directions on the box. Cook to al dente. Drain.
Lightly spray nonstick cooking spray inside a 13x9-inch baking pan or 2 9-inch round pans. Toss the spaghetti together with the sauce and pour it into the pan.
In a medium mixing bowl, combine the Ricotta, parmesan, mozzarella, egg, and spices. Spread the cheese stuff over top of the spaghetti.
Cover with foil. Bake at 375°F for 45 minutes or until cheese is bubbly. Or, cook it at 375°F for 20 minutes and then turn the broiler on high for about 3 minutes. You'll end up with that pizza-like cheese on top. If using the broiler method, keep a close eye on the dish, and remove when the cheese is browned and bubbly.
Allow to cool and rest for about 15 minutes, then serve.
