Spaghetti Pie

Tuesday, April 27, 2010

This kid pleasing dish is another one I found in our new church cookbook.  It was a cinch to put together and the adults in the house enjoyed it as much as the kids.  The consensus was that it tasted just like lasagna, which is a fancy Sunday dinner for us.  This came together much quicker than lasagna and is definitely going onto our weeknight menu.

The ingredients:
6 oz. uncooked spaghetti noodles
2 eggs, well beaten
1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
2 Tbs. melted butter
1 carton (15-oz.) ricotta cheese
1 lb. ground beef, cooked and crumbled (I used ground turkey)
1 jar (28-oz.) favorite spaghetti sauce
1-2 cups mozzarella cheese

Directions:  Cook spaghetti to al dente, as directed on package.  Drain.  In large bowl, mix noodles with eggs, Parmesan cheese, and butter.  Press into 9x13-inch baking dish.

Add layer of ricotta cheese,

then layer with ground beef (or turkey).

Top with spaghetti sauce and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.

Add 1-2 cups mozzarella cheese for the last 5 minutes or until melted.  Enjoy!

My friend makes a version of this that her family loves. It definitely looks as though it would please everybody and MUCH easier than lasagna!
