Spaghetti Pie

My husband's favorite meal is spaghetti. However, it has become a non-favorite of myself and the kiddos. Enter Spaghetti Pie. We loved this! I love it way more than regular spaghetti and the kids loved it because it was so easy to eat. Since you add egg and cheese to the pasta it sticks together, making it easier to eat. Give it a try, maybe it will become a family staple like it has at our house.

10 oz pasta, cooked and cooled to room temp
1/2 lb to 3/4 lb. hamburger
1, 26 oz, jar of spaghetti sauce
1 egg
1 egg white
1/2 cup parmesan
6-8 slices mozzarella or provolone cheese
Fresh or dried Parsley

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Boil pasta as directed. While pasta is cooling, cook hamburger. Add sauce and warm. Thouroughly grease 9 to 10 inch pie pan. (I used Butter Pam and it worked well) Combine pasta with egg, egg white and 1/2 parmesan. Pour into pie plate. Top with spaghetti sauce/hb mix. Top with slices of cheese then parmesan. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until as bubbly and browned as you would like. (I even broiled mine a bit at the end) Sprinkle with parsley after taking out of oven. Let sit for 5 minutes before slicing.

  1. We call this pizza pasta at our house and I add pepperoni instead of hamburger:) and some cottage cheese for moisture.
