Oh My! Spaghetti Pie

Spaghetti Pie from That's My Home

Spaghetti Pie

This is a great recipe for feeding a crowd or splitting the recipe in half and making one for the freezer for serving later. You start out with cooked spaghetti and then mix it with eggs, cottage cheese and parmesan cheese. If you don’t like cottage cheese leave it out, we happen to like it in there and adds some extra protein especially if you do a meatless sauce on top. This recipe has lots of versatility to it. It also freezes well. If you like jarred spaghetti sauce by all means use it. There are a lot of good products out there that can save you time.
