Spaghetti pie is a simple and classic dinner, and it’s super easy to make. If you are looking for a meal idea in which you will more than likely have all of the ingredients already on hand, this may be the perfect dish for you!
Ingredients you will need for Spaghetti Pie
- 4 ounces uncooked spaghetti
- 1/2 pound lean ground beef
- 1 small green bell pepper, chopped (1/2 cup)
- 1 small onion, chopped (1/4 cup)
- 1 (14-ounce) jar spaghetti sauce (I used my homemade sauce)
- 1 teaspoon chili powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- 2 large eggs
- 1 cup small curd creamed cottage cheese
- 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese (2 ounces)
Helpful Kitchen Tools
Heat oven to 375°. Grease pie plate, 10 x 1 1/2 inches. Cook spaghetti as directed on package. While spaghetti is cooking, cook beef, bell pepper, and onion in 10-inch skillet over medium heat 8 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until beef is brown; drain.
Stir in spaghetti sauce, chili powder, salt and pepper. Cook 5 to 6 minutes, stirring periodically, until sauce is thickened.
Easy enough, right? I hope you enjoy your spaghetti pie, I know my family did and I will be making it again soon! What’s you and your family’s favorite comfort food dish? Personally, I can always go for some potato soup like this Easy Cheddar Topped Potato Soup and of course, another favorite has to be my Italian Lasagna.
