A recipe for you

This is a family favorite. I often make two to do a meal for a friend in need, or to put one in the freezer. I believe I got this recipe from Better Homes and Gardens way back in the 80's

Spaghetti Pie Recipe

 Spaghetti Pie

  • 1 pound lean ground beef (90% lean)
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup chopped green pepper
  • 1 cup canned  Diced Tomatoes, undrained
  • 1 can (6 ounces) tomato paste
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 6 ounces spaghetti, cooked and drained
  • 2 tablespoon butter, melted
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/4 cup grated fresh Parmesan cheese
  • 1 cup (8 ounces)  cottage cheese
  • 1/2 to 1 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese


  • In a nonstick skillet, cook the beef, onion and green pepper over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Stir in the tomatoes, tomato paste, oregano, salt, garlic powder, sugar and pepper; set aside.
  • In a large bowl, combine the spaghetti, butter, eggs and Parmesan cheese. Press onto the bottom and up the sides of a 9-in. deep-dish pie plate coated with cooking spray. Top with cottage cheese and beef mixture.
  • Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 20 minutes. Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese. Bake 5-10 minutes longer or until cheese is melted and filling is heated through. Let stand for 5 minutes before cutting. Yield: 6 servings.
  • Note: on a busy night I have been known to use Jar sauce to speed up the process
  • Serve with green beans or a salad and your favorite french bread
