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.

Spaghetti Pie  (adapted from Family Circle)

Ingredients:

1/4 cup  tortilla chip crumbs
1 cup shredded mozzarella
8 ounces, broken into thirds and cooked according to package directions
1 cup marinara sauce
4 eggs, beaten
2 tablespoons grated Parmesan

Method:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Spray the bottom and sides of baking dish.

Coat with tortilla crumbs.

Mix cooked spaghetti with sauce and eggs and mix together.  Add mozzarella and mix some more. Place in baking dish.

Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.

Cover the top with the Parmesan and bake for another 5 minutes.

Cut in wedges or squares.  Eat and enjoy.

  5. Hi, Chaya! I linked a soup this week. Easily meatless when made with vegetable broth, which is how we make it most often.

    I haven't had spaghetti pie in years. Have not had it with tortilla chips--sounds like a good base for the pie.

    Thank you for hosting!
