Spaghetti Pie


Recipe Description
Similar to lasagna, but with spaghetti noodles. A little twist! ;-)​
Preparation Steps:
chop the onion
chop the green pepper
You can make ahead the meat mixture for when you're ready to get the "crust" ready​
Level of Difficulty:
Easy​
Time Needed:
approx. 20 minutes plus cooking time​
Ingredients:
12 oz spaghetti, cooked and drained
4 Tbsp margarine
1/3 cup Parmesan cheese
2 well beaten eggs
1 lb ground beef
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup chopped green pepper
8 oz can chopped tomatoes
6 oz can tomato sauce
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp oregano
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp garlic salt
1 cup cottage cheese​
Serves:
6​
Directions:
With first 4 ingredients make "crust" in 10 inch pie dish. Cook meat, onion and pepper until tender and meat is browned. Drain off excess fat. Stir in remaining ingredients. Spread cottage cheese over "crust" and fill with tomato/meat mixture. Bake covered in 350 degree F oven for about 60 minutes. Uncover and sprinkle with 1/2 cup grated mozzarella cheese. Bake until cheese is melted.

Note: You can also replace the can of chopped tomatoes and can of tomato sauce with a jar of thick spaghetti sauce.

Variation - Put meatballs (instead of the meat mixture) on top of the cottage cheese and pour spaghetti sauce over them.​

It was a success and very yummy. I gave him 1/4 of the pie plate to start...You know it's good when your hubby has seconds.

Could you be more specific when you say to make a "crust" out of the first four ingredients? Do I just mix those ingredients together and press them to the pie pan or...what? LOL sorry I hope this isnt a dumb question

I used to make something like this several years ago and misplaced the recipe. I think I only used 1 egg though.

I have meatballs in the freezer, I think I"ll be making this for a quick supper tonight, with a salad on the side.
