Spaghetti Pie by Nadia

casserole made with spaghetti and baked
Spaghetti Pie

1 (6 oz.) pkg spaghetti noodles, broken into 2-inch pieces)
2 T. butter, melted
1/3 c. grated Parmesan cheese
2 eggs, beaten
2 cups of your favorite marinara sauce
1/2 lb. lean ground beef
1 c. cottage cheese
4-5 provolone slices
1/2 c. shredded mozzarella cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Cook and drain the spaghetti noodles according to directions. Stir in butter, Parmesan cheese, and beaten eggs. Using a spoon, pat the spaghetti mixture into a buttered 9-10-inch round, deep glass pie plate.

Spread cottage cheese over the spaghetti layer.

In a large skillet, brown the ground beef and stir in the sauce until heated. Pour meat/sauce mixture over cottage cheese layer.

Bake at 350 degrees F. for 30 minutes. Remove from oven, switch to broil.

Layer 4-5 slices provolone cheese on casserole and sprinkle shredded mozzarella on top.

Return to oven, and broil until cheese is melted and golden brown. Let this sit for a few minutes before cutting and serving.

To double this recipe, use a 9×12 cake pan and bake 45-min or longer (until bubbling around the edges) before adding cheese and broiling.
