Spaghetti Pie

29 Oct

My mom makes this occasionally when we visit, and while I’ve always enjoyed it, I’ve never actually made it.  I finally got around to asking my mom for the recipe, and while they are in town visiting, we made it for dinner tonight.  Since we had 5 adults and 2 kids to feed, we doubled the recipe and made it in 2 8×8 baking dishes instead of a 10″ round baking dish.  So, while one of my pictures will show it in 2 8×8 dishes, I will give the directions for 1 Spaghetti pie in a 10″ round baking dish.

Spaghetti Pie

What you need:

1/2 box of spaghetti
2 Tbsp butter, melted
2 eggs, well beaten
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 lb ground beef
1 jar spaghetti sauce
1 cup cottage cheese
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

Hot to make it:

Preheat oven to 350 F.

Cook spaghetti according to package directions, drain.  Stir in the butter, eggs,  and Parmesan cheese.  Spray a  10″ round baking dish and press spaghetti mixture into the dish along the bottom and sides, forming it like a crust.

Meanwhile, brown ground beef, drain.  Add spaghetti sauce and simmer.

Spread the cottage cheese over the spaghetti crust.  Top with beef mixture.

Bake uncovered for 30 minutes.  Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese and bake 5 minutes longer, or until cheese melts.
