My Meatless Mondays - Spaghetti Pie
I had pulled out the Family Circle Annual Recipes for 2009. I had gotten the book for $5 at a local store, My thinking was that if I got three good recipes from the book, I have gotten my money's worth.
As I sat, listing the recipes, I wanted to make, I was pretty sure I would do well with the book. Many recipes stopped me and as I looked more closely, I was happy to add them to the list.
I saw a recipe for Spaghetti Pie. I have made, over the years, a number of spaghetti pies and I thinkm, we loved every one of them. This one was completely different from those so I had to give it a shot.
Hubby and I made this together. I enjoy cooking but sharing it with my best friend is loads of fun. Hubby really enjoyed this. I did not like the crumbs for a coating. I do like crumbs mixed in with pasta though.
