Spaghetti Pie Recipe
Spaghetti Pie

  • 4 ounces dried spaghetti
    2 egg whites, beaten
    1 tbs. butter
    1/4 c. grated Parmesan cheese
    8 ounces ground beef
    1/2 c. chopped onion
    1/2 c. chopped green sweet pepper
    1 clove garlic, minced
    1 8 ounce can tomato sauce
    1 tsp. dried oregano
    Non-stick cooking spray
    1 c. low-fat cottage cheese, drained
    1 egg white
    1 tsp. dried parsley
    1/2 c. shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese

    1.  Cook spaghetti according to package directions.  Drain
    2.  Return spaghetti to warm saucepan.  Stir butter into hot pasta until melted.  Stir
         in egg and Parmesan cheese; set aside.
    3.  Meanwhile, in a medium skillet cook ground beef, onion, sweet pepper and garlic
         until meat is brown and onion is tender.  Drain.  Stir in tomato sauce and oregano;       
         heat through.
    4.  Mix cottage cheese, egg white and parsley together.
    5.  Coat a 9" pie plate with non-stick cooking spray.  Press spaghetti mixture onto 
         bottom and up the sides of pie plate, forming a crust.  Spread cottage cheese 
         mixture over pasta crust.  Spread meat mixture over cottage cheese.   Sprinkle
         with shredded mozzarella cheese.
    6.  Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until bubbly.  Cut into wedges.

    We enjoy this served with garlic bread and a nice tossed salad.
