Darlene's Spaghetti Pie

I love these recipes. One is really easy and the other is a little more work. Either way they are both really good. The second pie has a crust made of spaghetti. I know it is really different but great for company if teens will be around doing homework or unexpected company. I have found however when I make spaghetti, I double the sauce so when I warm it up, you have extra sauce to make up for when I warm it up the next time. You can pour it over the spaghetti. Or warm it up over the stove so if any one wants extra sauce or you need some, you will have it.


Spaghetti Pie I


  • 1 lb. hamburger
  • 1 chopped onion
  • 1 green pepper
  • 2 eggs (beaten in one dish)
  • 1 small container cottage cheese or ricotta cheese
  • 1 small package spaghetti
  • 1-2 jars spaghetti sauce, your choice (I like to buy 2, especially if I am putting in oven)
  • 1/2 cup Romano cheese
  • 2 Tbsp. butter
  • 1-2 cups mozzarella (you can add more or less mozzarella, depending on your taste)


Ok, while you are cooking your hamburger, your spaghetti can be cooking away.

Add to large skillet: Hamburger, onion and pepper, cook until everything is done (hamburger is not pink and onion and pepper are soft). Drain spaghetti. Add eggs, Romano cheese, and butter. Mix well. Place in 13x9x2 inch baking dish (I use the largest pie pan). Top with cottage cheese. Spread sauce mixture then shredded cheese over top, do not cover.


Pre-heat oven to 350 F. Bake 20 minutes or until cheese melts. Or in a crock pot on low (10 hours). If using crock pot, add cheese later, about 1 hour before spaghetti is done. Keep watch on the cheese so you will know when it is melted and dinner is ready.

You can have a salad and Italian bread with this and it really is great, a great dinner.

Happy eating!

These sound easy and cheap. I will be making this, will have to do the one with the sauce not mixed in, my DH doesnt like his mixed, likes his sauce on top. Thank you for sharing.
