Spaghetti Pie

Some time ago, I stumbled upon an interesting recipe that caught my attention – the Spaghetti Pie. I was intrigued by the idea of transforming the classic spaghetti dish into a pie form, so I decided to give it a shot. And I must say, I am extremely pleased with the results! This pie turns out to be a real crowd-pleaser, and it tastes amazing.

If you’re looking for a comforting and delicious meal that everyone will love, the Spaghetti Pie is a perfect choice. The recipe is simple, yet impressive, making it a great dish to serve to your family and friends. Plus, it’s easily adaptable to different serving sizes and can be a great option for feeding a crowd.

For my Spaghetti Pie recipe, I chose to use a tomato and meat sauce filling, which is a favorite in my family. The crust is made of spaghetti, followed by a layer of creamy ricotta cheese, the savory tomato, and meat sauce, and topped with a generous amount of mozzarella and Parmesan cheese. After baking the result is a mouthwatering, golden-brown pie that’s simply irresistible.

How to make Spaghetti Pie

Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C), and lightly grease an 8-inch (20cm) springform pan, while also wrapping it with a layer of aluminum foil. 

Prepare the meat tomato sauce by heating oil over medium heat in a large skillet and add onions. Once soft, add garlic, and then ground beef and ground pork. Cook until the meat is no longer pink, and then add tomato sauce, salt, pepper, oregano, fresh basil, and sugar. Simmer for about 15 minutes and then set aside to cool.

Prepare the spaghetti crust by first cooking the spaghetti in salted water for 3-4 minutes less than the package instructions indicate. In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, melted butter, and Parmesan cheese. Add the spaghetti and toss to coat. Press the spaghetti mixture onto the bottom and up the sides of the prepared pan to create a crust.

In a small bowl prepare the ricotta cheese mixture by mixing the ricotta cheese with fresh basil and spread it on top of the spaghetti mixture.

Pour the meat tomato sauce on top, followed by a sprinkling of mozzarella cheese and Parmesan cheese. Bake the pie for 25-30 minutes or until the cheese is golden brown. Once out of the oven, garnish with fresh basil.

In my opinion, this Spaghetti Pie recipe is one of the best pasta dishes you can ever prepare. It’s rich, flavorful, and comforting – the perfect combination for a hearty meal. I highly recommend giving it a try and enjoying it with your loved ones. Trust me, they’ll be asking for seconds!

    This recipe is awesome. I have tried it but I have prepared my tomato sauce. I used tomatoes which I really love which are . I make a sauce out of them and then can so I can use it later, you know, in the winter when it’s not a season for growing veggies in the garden. Dish came out amazing, I really recommend.
