Spaghetti Pie

The other day, I wanted spaghetti pie for dinner. Naturally, I checked my blog for the recipe. It wasn't there! I couldn't believe I hadn't done a post on it yet. It's one of my all time faves! It's relatively easy and oh, so yummy!!

  • 6 oz spaghetti, cooked, drained, rinsed with cold water
  • 1 large egg, separated
  • 1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 lb ground beef
  • 1 1/4 cups spaghetti sauce
  • 3/4 cup cottage cheese
  • 1 tsp dried parsley
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese, divided


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Spray a 9-inch pie plate with cooking spray. Combine spaghetti, egg white, and Parmesan in a medium bowl. Press mixture into pie plate to form a pie shell.
Heat a nonstick skillet over medium heat; add beef. Cook, stirring frequently, until beef is brown and crumbly; about 5 minutes. Stir in spaghetti sauce; simmer for 5 minutes. Set aside.

Combine cottage cheese, egg yolk, parsley and 1/2 cup mozzarella in a medium bowl. Spread mixture into spaghetti pie shell.
Spread meat sauce over cheese mixture.
Top with remaining mozzarella.

Cover pie with foil. Bake for 35 minutes, removing foil during the last 10 minutes of cooking. Let stand before serving.

Of course, I couldn't wait to eat this when it came out, so I forgot to take a picture of the final product before cutting and serving this delicious meal. You'll just have to imagine the above picture with the cheese all nice and melted. :-)
