Spaghetti Pie

Last week I had some leftover meatballs from making the Turkey Meatball and Green Olive Casserole and wanted to make spaghetti. Someone was talking about Million Dollar Spaghetti and while I read the ingredients and realized I didn’t have everything at home to make it, I remembered that I used to make a spaghetti pie. So I decided to make it, with the meatballs instead of the meat sauce, and it was awesome! My husband was a huge fan and it’s now going to be one of our go-to meals!

Ingredients

  • 1 lb. of ground beef (or about a dozen or so meatballs in this case)
  • 8 oz. spaghetti noodles – cooked to al dente
  • 1/2 cup of Parmesan cheese
  • 1 egg – slightly beaten
  • 2 cups of your favorite spaghetti sauce – I normally make my own
  • 1-2 cups of shredded mozzarella (or sliced fresh mozzarella)

Directions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees
  2. Take your cooked spaghetti noodles and toss them with the Parmesan cheese and the egg. Press into the bottom of a 9″ pie pan to form a crust. Make sure the push it from the center so that it goes up the sides as well
  3. Mix the meat into the spaghetti sauce and pour into the center of the ‘crust’ for the filling
  4. Sprinkle mozzarella cheese on top (or if using fresh mozzarella – places slices closely together) to form the top crust
  5. Bake for 30 minutes or until the cheese starts to brown and becomes bubbly. Let it stand for about 15 minutes and cut into wedges and serve!
