This spaghetti pie is pure comfort food to me when it starts getting cold, I know I am going to be making this casserole. It has a layer of pasta with a ricotta cheese and Parmesan, my spaghetti sauce recipe and a layer of Italian cheese….. it is so yummy. It is everything that lasagna has but so much easier to make. I also made some french bread rolls to go along with it. I love the recipe because I can make them in less than 2 hours which is pretty good for scratch yeast rolls.

I used bucatini pasta to make this dish but spaghetti noodles will work just fine. Now that I can find bucatini pasta I am having a love affair with it. Not really but I am using it a lot. What makes bucatini different from spaghetti is that is hollow and a little thicker. It takes about 9 – 10 minutes to cook. I under cook it for this casserole so that it doesn’t over bake when this casserole is put together and baked.
