Super Saucy spaghetti pie

It’s always fun to put a twist on the every day classic. What about taking spaghetti, then making it into pie format? Add a whisked egg and some parmesan cheese to bind it together to form a crust. Then press into a pie plate, then fill your layers like you would a pie! The pie filling is your meat sauce, then your cheese topping is…well, the cheese topping! Slices like pie, tastes like spaghetti!

For a VEGAN option, add lentils and ground mushrooms to help bulk up your sauce. TOTALLY your choice which veggies you’d like to use!

For a Dairy Free option, use DF cheeses, you can also skip the ricotta layer entirely.

ENJOY!

Ingredients

  • 3 c cooked spaghetti (about 6 oz)
  • olive oil
  • 1 lb lean ground beef any ground meat, meat substitute would work (lentils, mushrooms, etc).
  • 1 small onion
  • 1/2 red pepper all peppers work (also optional)
  • 1 jar fave pasta sauce
  • 1 small container of ricotta optional (cottage cheese works too). YOU can skip this layer entirely if you prefer!
  • 1/2 c parmesan cheese shredded, grated, all work!
  • 1 c your fave type of shredded cheese (1 for ricotta layer, 1 for spaghetti layer)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp parsley You can also add basil, etc.
  • salt & pepper

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°. **Your spaghetti should be cooked ahead of time and just resting (can make overnight and put into the fridge)

MAKE THE SAUCE LAYER

  • Cook ground beef in large frying pan on medium high heat until browned with olive oil, diced onions, red pepper, salt/pepper. Mix in jar of sauce and let simmer. *add a pinch of sugar if you want to add a little sweetness *also helps break up the acidity.

MAKE THE RICOTTA LAYER

  • In a separate bowl, mix ricotta and 1 egg, salt, pepper, 1 tsp parsley or basil (this ingredient is also optional). Set aside.

MAKE THE "CRUST" LAYER

  • Combine pasta with 1 egg, 1/2 c parm and salt/pepper. Stir together until incorporated. 

BUILD THE PIE

  • Spray a pie plate with non stick spray. Pour in your spaghetti mixture and press into the plate, just like you would with a pie crust. Using your hands, bring the spaghetti up to form the walls of the pie crust, almost creating a "nest".
  • Spoon in your ricotta/egg layer spreading it all over the spaghetti until it's a nice even, thin layer.
  • Then spoon in your pasta sauce until it almost reaches the top. *you might have extra, perfect, now you have dinner for another night! Do not add SO much sauce that it's a lake in the middle, but you want to nicely cover the ricotta layer.
  • Once your meat/sauce layer is added in, just like a pie "filling", top with shredded cheese and if you want to shake on some additional parm you can. 
  • Bake 350 until golden and bubbly on top, about 30-40 mins! Check to see if that's enough time. As all ovens vary you might even need to let it cook for another 15-20 mins. You want it to be golden, bubbling and cooked through.
    Let cool/set up for about 10 minutes before you slice and enjoy!
