Spaghetti Pie

Submitted by: MIRAGE1210

Introduction

A twist on lasagna A twist on lasagna
Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients

    8 oz spaghetti (about half of a package)
    2 T butter
    1/3 c parmesan cheese
    2 well-beaten eggs
    8 oz part-skim ricotta
    1 lb lean ground beef
    1/2 c chopped onion
    1/4 c chopped green pepper
    1 6-oz can tomato paste
    1/2 14.5 oz can diced tomatoes
    1 t sugar
    1 t dried oregano
    1 t garlic salt
    1/2 c shredded mozzarella





Directions

Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Butter a pie plate.

Boil the spaghetti according to package directions, then drain. Mix with the butter and parmesan and use to form a "crust" in the pie plate.

Brown the ground beef, onion, and green pepper together. Drain off the fat, then add the tomato paste, tomatoes, sugar, oregano, and garlic salt and bring to a simmer.

While that's simmering, mix the egg and the ricotta. Pour it into the middle of the spaghetti noodle crust.

Top with the ground beef and tomato mixture, leaving some "crust" bare around the edges.

Cook covered at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Top with the mozzarella and then cook uncovered for another 5 minutes.

This is a fairly bland recipe--you could spice it up by adding garlic to the ground beef, adding more oregano, basil, and parsley, or using ground sausage instead of ground beef.

Serves 8.

  • This was VERY good. I added a bit more oregano - didn't use as much spaghetti in it, and added some spicy Mrs. Dash to make the meat more "flavorfull". Hubby went back for seconds and that means something!!! - 11/6/08
