Posts Tagged ‘leftover spaghetti’

When I worked full time outside of the house, I used to find a lot of great, simple and easy recipes from Kraft. Now not so much as I enjoy putting more effort into meals as time allows. Once and awhile however I do get tired of cooking and want something easy and quick (besides pizza – which our kids don’t like anyhow!). So this is one I found on Kraft and as usual modified slightly.

Spaghetti Pie

1/2 lb – lean ground beef, cooked & drained
1 cup – your favourite homemade or store purchased pasta sauce
3 – eggs
1 cup – parmesan cheese, grated
3 cups – long noodles (spaghetti, linguine, spaghettini, fettucine), cooked and drained or leftovers
1 cup – mozzarella cheese, shredded
dried herbs (basil, thyme, oregano – whatever floats your boat)
salt & pepper to taste

1 lightly greased pie plate (9 inch)

Preheat oven to 350F.

1. Mix meat and pasta sauce.

2. Beat eggs, parmesan cheese, salt & pepper and a pinch of dried herbs in large bowl. Add pasta incorporating everything well.

3. Spread pasta mixture into bottom and up side of pie plate. Top with meat sauce. Sprinkle with mozza cheese. At this point you can add more cheese on top (provolone, more mozza, parmesan) if you wish.

4. Bake 20 minutes or until mozza is melted and bubbling. Let stand and cut in wedges to serve.

Serve with a green salad or some veggies and you have a quick, easy and inexpensive meal!
