Recipe: Spaghetti Pie

The Mister actually spotted this recipe while reading one of his farm newspapers. I was skeptical because we've eaten baked spaghetti ten different ways, but this one looked a little different than my other stand-by pizza casserole dishes. I think it's the layer of herbed cream cheese that  makes it extra delicious. As an added bonus, there was plenty left over for a second meal.

I like that anything right now that's easy to put together because, most days, I'm all about just getting some kind of nutritious food on the table. 

It was definitely a winner.

12 oz. cooked spaghetti
1 tsp. garlic powder
2 eggs, beaten
1/3 cup Parmesan cheese
1/2 tsp. salt (I just sprinkled)
2 T. butter 

Combine crust ingredients and spread into a 9x13-inch pan. 

Herb layer:
8 oz. softened cream cheese
1/2 tsp. salt (Again, I just gave it a few shakes)
1/4 tsp. thyme
1 tsp. basil
1 tsp. oregano
1/3 tsp. pepper
1 cup sour cream

Combine herb layer ingredients and spread over crust.

Meat layer:
1 pound ground beef
24 oz. spaghetti sauce

Brown and drain ground beef and combine with spaghetti sauce; pour over herb layer. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes. Top with:

Mozzarella cheese
Parmesan cheese (I omitted the extra parm and it was still delicious)

Heat until melted.

Picnic, anyone?    


  1. I'm learning how to comment not from my blog address so bear with me if this posts twice. I am learning to cook for 2-3 people at a time so this does look perfect for a meal and a spare. I just pinned it - THANKS, it looks DELISH!

    1. Oh good, I know you're going to like it. If you wanted to feed 5-5 in one meal with this you could, or 2-3 with leftovers. Hooray for flexibility.

  2. I remember years ago making spaghetti casserole......kinda similar to what you have here......time to revisit it as it's something I can make up during the day, stick in the fridge and then cook at night!!.......waving big hello to you :)

  3. That looks yummy! I'll have some now, please!

  4. That looks yummmmmmy ;) have a blessed weekend sweet friend
