Spaghetti Pie Recipe

One of the favorites of TK…

4 oz spaghetti

1 tablespoon of butter

1 beaten egg

¼ cup of grated Parmesan cheese

8 oz of ground beef (or chorizo if you like it spicy)

1 medium onion

1 clove garlic, minced

1 8 oz can tomato sauce

1 teaspoon oregano

Non stick cooking spray

1 cup of cottage cheese

½ cup of shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese

  • Cook spaghetti according to package directions. Drain.
  • Return spaghetti to warm saucepan. Stir butter into hot pasta until melted. Stir in egg and Parmesan cheese; set aside.
  • Meanwhile, cook ground beef. Throw in onion, garlic, or whatever else until meat is brown and onion is tender. Drain.
  • Stir in tomato sauce and oregano, heat through.
  • Coat a 9 inch pie plate with non-stick cooking spray, or butter. Press spaghetti mixture onto bottom and sides of the plate to form a crust.
  • Spread cottage cheese on the top and up sides of pasta crust, and even though it sounds like it doesn’t mix, it does.
  • Spread meat mixture over cottage cheese, and cover top with mozzarella cheese.
  • Bake in a 350 degree oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until bubbly. Cut into pieces, and you’re ready to go!
