Pasta Pie

“Some failure in life is inevitable. It is impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all — in which case, you fail by default.” — J. K. Rowling

This is a different twist on spaghetti and it’s so quick and easy to make.   I found this recipe in an old church magazine.  Click here for link.

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 6 ounces spaghetti, cooked and drained
  • 1 cup cottage cheese
  • 1 pound ground beef, cooked
  • 1 jar (26 ounces) spaghetti sauce
  • 1 4-inch square piece of tinfoil
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  1. Stir butter, Parmesan cheese, and eggs into hot spaghetti. Lightly coat a 10-inch (25-cm) pie plate with nonstick spray or butter, and press the noodle mixture into the pan to form a crust. Spread the cottage cheese evenly over the top.

  2. Mix the cooked ground beef and spaghetti sauce, and pour over the cottage cheese.

  3. Bake uncovered for 20 minutes at 350°F.

  4. Trace a heart shape onto the tinfoil and cut it out. Remove the pasta pie from the oven and place the heart-shaped piece of tinfoil in the middle. Sprinkle the mozzarella cheese around the edge of the tinfoil and bake for 5 more minutes. Let the pasta pie cool slightly before removing the tinfoil. Cut into pie-shaped wedges and serve.
