“I enjoyed a whirlwind of Italian cooking in the past week or so - making sauce, spaghetti, pizza, and lasagna. I realized I had a lot of leftover ingredients from these meals, and decided to use them all in one final leftover recipe. This is based on a spaghetti pie I learned to make when I just got married. It is meatless, but you could certainly add some, or even use a meat sauce. It's extremely versatile, and lends itself well to whatever you need to use up in the fridge. In my case, I still had whole wheat thin spaghetti, ricotta, mozzarella, and olives and mushrooms from the pizza, so that's what I used.”

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Coat a large pie plate (9-10") with non-stick cooking spray and place on a foil-lined baking sheet.
  2. In a large bowl, beat eggs, then add ricotta cheese, 1/2 cup parmesan, 1/2 cup mozzarella, and 1/2 cup marinara sauce. When well blended, stir in spaghetti until well coated with ricotta mixture.
  3. Transfer spaghetti mixture to the pie plate and spread evenly with spatula. Pour on 2-1/2 cups marinara, making sure to spread that evenly, as well. Top with 1/2 cup mozzarella and then sprinkle with 2 T. parmesan cheese. Bake in oven for approximately 25 minutes, until bubbly and cheese is melted and browned. (I do recommend letting it stand for about 10 minutes before slicing into pie wedges and serving.).
