Spaghetti Pie

I made this last week for dinner and we loved it. It is quick, easy and tasty! Everyone in my family enjoyed it which is always a positive. You can be creative and add mushrooms, black olives or whatever you like. I used jarred sauce and added ground beef but if you have homemade sauce on hand - even better!

Spaghetti Pie

7-8 oz thin spaghetti
3 Tbsp butter
3 eggs
2/3 cup shredded Parmesan Cheese
4 oz cream cheese, softened
2 cups prepared meat sauce ( I used 1 jar sauce/1 lb ground beef, browned)
2 cups mozzarella cheese

Cook spaghetti and drain. Pour into large mixing bowl, add butter tossing to melt. Whisk eggs and add Parmesan cheese mixing two together. Once butter is melted and pasta is slightly cooled, toss with egg/Parmesan mixture. Press spaghetti into a greased pie pan or quiche pan pressing the spaghetti up the sides to form a crust. Spread softened cream cheese over center of pie - avoiding the "crust". Top with the prepared meat sauce. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes, top with Mozzarella cheese and return to oven for 10 minutes or until melted. Allow to set for about 10 minutes and cut into slices. Serve with green salad.

*can be prepared ahead and refrigerated
