Last week I made a big pot of spaghetti sauce. Its always nice to make this meal in a large quantity so you can freeze the sauce to re-heat and use as left overs. Last week I decided that instead of eating spaghetti two nights in the week that I would try spaghetti pie. The recipe is one that my friend Beverly makes with her left over spaghetti; the recipe comes from more with less cookbook. There isn't really specific measurements so I was worried that it wouldn't turn out...I was wrong it was very yummy and is a recipe that I will be adding to our menu as it tasted wonderful and it freezes well to!!
Grease a pie plate. Make the crust from about 2 servings of cooked spaghetti noodles, 1 beaten egg, about 1/4 Parmesan cheese, and a little melted butter. Mix together and put in plate. Put some grated cheese on top and then your spaghetti sauce. Add more grated cheese and bake 350 x 25-30. Enjoy.
This pie can also be made into spaghetti pizza, that's how hubby likes it! To make the pizza I simply whip up the noodle base as shown above. Then I spread it all over a pizza pan and bake the noodles in the oven for about 12-15 minutes at 350. We like the noodles to be crispy. After they have cooked a little while I add the sauce and pizza toppings. This has become such a yummy treat in our house.
Another recipe that goes great with this are this simple (and very delicious) bread sticks.
