spaghetti pie...

10 oz spaghetti; cooked
1/2-3/4 lb lean ground beef (or turkey)
1 jar spaghetti sauce
1 egg
1 egg white
2/3 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese

Cook meat and add spaghetti sauce. Set aside.
Cool cooked pasta to room temp. Mix with eggs & half of the cheese. Press into a greased 10in pie plate. Spread sauce/meat mixture over spaghetti and bake, covered, at 350 degrees for 25-30 min. Remove foil, top with remaining cheese and bake another 3-5 min. Let sit at room temp for a few minutes before slicing.

I make pasta several different ways, but for some reason this one takes the cake with my family. My boys each had two servings and still wanted more. I agree that this is my favorite, too! If your pie plate is a different size (most are 9 inch) just cut back a little on the pasta & sauce. You could certainly use less or more cheese, depending on your liking & how forgiving your hips are!

This seems so simple, but was surprisingly very tasty. I used the Rinaldi Sweet & Tasty Tomato for my spaghetti sauce. Thank you!
