9With tongs, I place spaghetti mixture into the garlic crust. You can pour it in, but I find it easier to add a little at a time, to place it where I want.

10Once spaghetti is placed in the crust as you wish, if any of the sides of crust got pushed down in, pull them back up, it's easy to keep them in place, now that the pasta is in the dish.

Place tomato slices on top and sprinkle with fresh basil.

11Sprinkle the top with remaining 3/4 cup of Swiss cheese and bake for 20 - 25 minutes or until warm and beginning to brown.

12Leave set for about 10 minutes before cutting. Salt & pepper to taste.

Serve with a salad and you have one fantastic meal. This would be very impressive to serve to dinner quests.
