Spaghetti Pie

(This is a recipe my mom gave me years ago. Great for leftover spaghetti.)

2 tbsp butter or margarine (melted)
2 eggs (well beaten)
1/3 cup Parmesan cheese (grated)
6 oz spaghetti noodles (cooked)
1 cup cottage cheese (I actually prefer Ricotta cheese)
1 cup spaghetti sauce
1/2 cup mozzarella cheese

Mix together butter, eggs, Parmesan cheese and noodles and make a crust in the bottom of a greased pan. Spread on cottage cheese, then spaghetti sauce. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Sprinkle mozzarella cheese on top and bake 5 minutes longer, or until cheese melts.

  1. This recipe for Spaghetti Pie looks so delicious, yet simple and family friendly! Cooking for your kids is a great way to encourage healthy eating through family mealtime together. What about taking it a step further and having your kids help with the cooking, even just once a week?
    I work with the Healthy Monday Campaigns, which just launched a new family dinner program. The Kids Cook Monday aims to encourage families to cook and eat together every Monday. Research shows that children from families who cook and eat together often are less likely to be obese, eat a more nutritious diet and get better grades in school (to see more on the benefits of family dinners, check out The Kids Cook Monday site http://www.mondaycampaigns.org/the-kids-cook-monday.)
    We are looking for family oriented blogs to take on the challenge and help us spread the word about The Kids Cook Monday, through weekly posts. If you’re interested in taking part by doing weekly The Kids Cook Monday posts on Busy Moms Recipes, please email me at info@TheKidsCookMonday.org.

    Thanks so much, and keep on cooking!
