spaghetti pie

Looking for a fun dinner your kids will love? Try this dish—it is a combination of spaghetti and lasagna. You can make it into a pie shape or individual cupcakes. The best part is it is very easy to make, can be made in advance and even frozen. Or, if you are rushing home from work it can be made in under an hour. Try cooking the spaghetti noodles in the morning if you have time, throw it together at the last second and bake for 20-30 minutes. Easy as pie!



½ package of high fibre spaghetti, cooked
2 eggs, whisked
¼ cup parmesan cheese
1 Tablespoon olive oil
1 cup light ricotta cheese
½ tsp Italian herbs
2 cups tomato sauce
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

  Preheat oven to 350.

  Stir oil into cooked noodles.

  Spray a pie plate with nonstick spray.

  Mix cooked noodles with eggs and parmesan. Spread noodle mixture along bottom of pie plate. Mix ricotta with Italian herbs.

  Spread on top of noodle mixture. Top with tomato sauce.

  Sprinkle mozzarella over top tomato sauce.

  Bake for 20-30  minutes or until cheese is melted and pie is heated through.

  If freezing allow to cool completely before putting in the freezer. To reheat place in 375 oven for 1 hour.

  For cupcakes, spray mini muffin tins with nonstick spray. Do the same order of ingredients but place 1 Tablespoon of noodle mixture in each mini muffin space, top with 1 Tablespoon ricotta, 1 Tablespoon tomato sauce and 1 Tablespoon shredded cheese. Baking time is the same.

Makes 4-6 servings, depending on how you slice the pie!
