Spaghetti Pie

Thursday, July 30, 2015
This is a totally delicious Spaghetti Pie casserole that the kids and adults just loved who cares what shape you make it in.

Personally a pie plate isn't deep enough to get the full experience of Spaghetti Pie so I use a casserole dish and savor the deep dish flavors of this great all in one meal!

It's an American version sometimes referred to as poor man's lasagna.

All in all, it's one of the tastiest and tallest casseroles I have ever made and usually done in a springform pan, but since I didn't have one, my casserole vessel did the trick.

I love the fact that it's packed with delicious cheeses and amazing Italian sauce.

Just be sure to make two because this spin on the classic spaghetti taste more like lasagna and a fun spin on spaghetti plus it can be any shape and cut like a pie!

Homemade Marinara or store-bought sauce will be a compliment in flavor to this casserole on your tables.

Easy Meals

This pie is made in a springform pan, but no problem if you don't have one just put this in a large greased casserole dish and proceed the same way with the spaghetti crust.

The pie is made with spaghetti crust, ricotta, and meat with marinara sauce and the crust will hold together just fine cut into squares, the springform pan is easier to release if you have one.

Pasta Fillings

If you love lasagna or your kids love pasta, this is the perfect all-in-one casserole meal, we like it with both ground beef and sausage but you can make it with or without meat.

The spaghetti crust can be layered with all vegetables instead of pasta or even seafood, so just get creative and adapt the recipe however you like.

  1. use bottled sauces for faster casseroles
  2. use frozen-thawed and crushed meatballs for more flavor instead of ground beef
  3. when possible use all fresh herbs
  4. don't overcook the pasta
  5. always salt the water
  6. homemade marinara sauce is the best when you're not in a hurry
  7. make this is a very deep casserole dish, springform 10-inch pan, or another baking dish that can accommodate all the ingredients listed
