Spaghetti Pie

Spaghetti?  Pie?  Yum!

This is a fun twist on a traditional recipe that we have made for years.


You'll Need:
1lb. Ground Beef (GB)
16oz pkg spaghetti
32oz jar of spaghetti sauce
3 Tbsp. Butter/Marg.
2/3c. Parmesan Cheese
4 eggs, beaten
1/2 green bell pepper, diced
1 small onion, diced
2 cloves garlic
2c. shredded mozzarella cheese
Seasonings to your liking

Preheat oven to 350.

Cook GB and drain.  In the same pan, cook bell pepper, garlic and onion.  Cook until onions are translucent.  Add GB, seasonings (as you would regular spaghetti), stir.

Meanwhile, start cooking your spaghetti noodles.  Don't cook ahead.  Allowing the meat and veggies to mingle does wonders for this dish. (Same with most pasta dishes)  Cook noodles to the directions on the box.  Drain.

To the noodles, add butter, parm, and eggs.  Quickly stir to combine (you don't want to scramble the eggs).

In a sprayed 13x9 baking dish, add your noodle mixture and place it in the pan like you would a crust.

Top "crust" with meat mixture.

Bake for 20 min's.

Add your mozzerella cheese and bake for an additional 5-7 min's.
