The other night a friend mentioned that she had never heard of Spaghetti Pie.
Never. Heard. Of. It?
Well, Jean, this is the recipe I have used for over 20 years:
Cook 4 -6 oz of angel hair pasta, drain.
Mix together: 1T butter, 2T Parmesan Cheese and 1 egg and stir into pasta.
Spread pasta in a greased pie plate.
Cover with about 1/4 c cottage cheese:
Fry up 1/2 - 3/4 lb ground beef, 1/4 cup chopped green pepper and 1/4 cup chopped onion.
Add 1/2 cup diced tomatoes in juice and 1/4 cup tomato paste, 1/8 t sugar and 1/8 t oregano, salt and pepper:
Spread meat mixture over cottage cheese:
Bake for 20 minutes and then cover 1/2-3/4 c shredded cheese
(I like a mixture of mozzarella and cheddar) and bake for 5 more minutes:
And it's as simple as that!
Slice and serve it with garlic bread!
