Spaghetti Pie

Recently my husband and I were discussing some his favorite childhood meals and he mentioned a dish called spaghetti pie. First of all, I had never heard of spaghetti pie, but it did sound good! Now that’s rather interesting. Delicious spaghetti but in pie form. Yum!

I was finally able to locate this recipe in the Martin family’s cookbook and made it while he was at work, (in case I messed it up). Thankfully it turned out amazing! My kids and I ate an entire pie in one sitting. It was actually easier and less messy for my little ones to eat than normal spaghetti. It’s probably because the noodles are not as long once the pie is cut into slices.

While Spaghetti Pie is just as easy as making normal spaghetti, it certainly puts a whole new spin on serving messy pasta. Simply layer the ingredients (like a pie) and bake it for a short time.

Start with 1 pound of ground meat: beef, sausage, turkey, or a combination. Cook and drain off the grease.

Side note: I used gluten free noodles since some of my family members can’t have gluten. Otherwise, this recipe is gluten free.

Next, add your meat and spaghetti sauce. You can use whatever sauce you like although I like to use my favorite homemade sauce: Made from Scratch Spaghetti Sauce.

Because I didn’t want the noodles to dry out too much while baking, I made sure I used plenty of sauce to adequately cover the noodles.

Right after supper was over I started editing these pictures on my computer. My 6-year-old son walked up to me and said, “Oh man my mouth is watering just looking at those pictures. I wish I could have more!” This was seriously not 20 minutes after he had two big helpings of this!

    Hi Anna! I was just sending your mum an email and it reminded to come back to let you know I tried this last weekend and it was fab! It held together well, I added more hidden "greens" in it, like grated zucchini and carrot, and I used a mix of beef and sausage. Yummy!
