Spaghetti Pie

December 09, 2011


Who doesn't love spaghetti?  Whether it's made with ground turkey or ground beef, it definitely fits the "comfort food" category.  For a twist on the same old spaghetti, try your hand at this easy pie version.

Spaghetti Pie
Crust:
4 ounces angel hair or thin spaghetti noodles, broken into 2-inch pieces
2 T. unsalted butter
1/2 c. grated Parmesan cheese
1 large egg, beaten

Filling:
2 t. vegetable or canola oil
1 small onion, minced
1 pound lean ground beef or ground turkey
salt and pepper
1 - 24 ounce jar (or homemade) spaghetti sauce (*if you like it less saucy, use 3/4's the amount)
1 c. ricotta or mascarpone
1 large egg
1 c. shredded mozzarella cheese

For the crust:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Bring 2 quarts water to boil in a large saucepan.  Add the pasta and cook until al dente.  Drain.

Combine the cooked pasta, butter, Parmesan, and egg in the pan used to cook the pasta in (or a medium bowl).  Press the mixture into a 9 or 10-inch pie plate.  Bake, with the rack in the center of the oven, until the crust is set, about 15-20 minutes.  Remove to a wire rack until the filling is ready.

For the filling:
While the crust is baking, heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat until shimmering.  Add the onion and cook until softened, 3-4 minutes.  Add beef or turkey, stirring while cooking, until cooked through and lightly browned, 7-8 minutes.  Drain off excess fat and season to taste with salt and pepper.  Stir in the spaghetti sauce and simmer until heated through and thickened slightly.

In a small bowl stir together the ricotta or mascarpone and egg.  Season lightly with salt and pepper.  Stir ricotta mixture evenly over the pasta crust.  Top with the meat sauce and sprinkle with the mozzarella cheese.

Bake until browned, 25 minutes.  Remove to a wire rack to cool about 15 minutes before serving.  Slice into wedges and enjoy!

Real Food Meal Plan - Week of January 21, 2018

January 22, 2018


If you’re just tuning in, this is an ongoing series in which I share our weekly meal plan as I (attempt) to convert us to a Whole/Real Foods lifestyle. I actually meal plan monthly but share it here weekly because it makes more sense to do so. Meal planning is my way of controlling the grocery budget (read as a LOT of dollars saved), ensuring there is no food waste for the week, as well as saving...

8 Steps To Creating Your Own Simple Homemade Life

January 18, 2018

Simple Living

As a follow-up to “What Is Simple Living”, these are steps (goals) that I’ve been using and will continue to use this year on my own path to a simple, homemade life.  I shared that I come from a family of collectors and that was my first challenge – purging the collections.  It was emotional and difficult at times but I can honestly tell you that I am thrilled that I did it.

So the collections are...

The BEST Deviled Eggs

January 17, 2018


When we first purchased chickens we hadn't thought through the fact that we were 2 people with a dozen laying hens. That meant 12 eggs about every 26 hours. We certainly had no trouble finding people we could gift our beautiful eggs to, but we also wanted to come up with delicious ways to use some of the excess ourselves. I've always loved deviled eggs but when I came across this recipe and...
