Italian Spaghetti Pie

Catie B


I have had this recipe in my family collection many years now. I first tried it because I thought it would be nice to have something different for dinner. I liked it as my kids were young,and because it holds together well, it was neater to eat for kids and adults.
It has always been a hit for family and casual company dinners, or Sunday afternoon lunch. Because it makes a unique presentation, I am often asked for the recipe.
You can use jarred spaghetti sauce, or your own favorite.
Hope you enjoy!

How to Make Italian Spaghetti Pie


  1. Heat oven to 350〫
    Grease a 10 inch pie pan, or 9 inch square pan.
  2. Cook spaghetti as directed to desired doneness; drain. It is good to put a tablespoon of oil in the pan to help keep the pasta lubricated.
    When well drained, set aside in a large bowl.
  3. Meanwhile, in a large skillet brown beef; drain, and add celery; steam a bit to tenderize.
    Add spaghetti sauce and mushrooms.
    Simmer 15 minutes to meld flavors, and reduce liquid a bit.
    Have sauce ready and sitting off of heat to cool a little while preparing 'crust' for pie.
  4. In the large bowl with spaghetti, combine eggs, 1/4 cup parmesan cheese, garlic salt (OR garlic powder and salt mix).
    When well combined, place mixture in prepared pie pan.

    Press lightly, evenly over bottom and up sides, forming a crust.

    Top with meat mixture, leaving the side crust uncovered. Sprinkle with remaining parmesan cheese.
  5. Bake at 350〫for 25-30 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes before serving. Cut into 6-8 wedges or squares.

    Serve with additional sauce and cheese on side if desired.
