Spaghetti Pie

Ingredients
  • 1 pound Spaghetti
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 3 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 1 (16 ounce) package Mozzarella cheese, divided
  • 2 pounds ground beef or sweet Italian sausage, I mix both
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 (24 ounce) jar Spaghetti sauce or your homemade sauce. I use 2½ cups of my homemade sauce I make and freeze.
  • 1 (16 ounce) Ricotta cheese or cottage cheese, we use Ricotta
Instructions
  1. Cook and drain spaghetti, mix in a bowl with butter, eggs, Parmesan cheese, and ½ of the mozzarella cheese.
  2. While pasta is cooking, brown ground beef and/or sausage with onion. Add your pasta sauce and let simmer. We like it thick and meaty. If you like a thinner sauce you can use less meat or add a little water or tomato sauce.
  3. Press spaghetti mixture into the bottom and up the side of your 9 x 13 dish forming a shell.
  4. Evenly spread the ricotta on top of the pasta and top with sauce mixture. Top with the remaining 2 cups of Mozzarella.
  5. Bake in a 350 degree oven for about 30 minutes.
I used to make this in a deep dish pie plate when my kids were younger, but as they and their appetites grew, I doubled the ingredients that went into one pie and put it in a 9 x 13" dish. I just found it easier than making 2 "pies."
