11 Ideas For Dinner Tonight, #8
Anyone Who Tries This Spaghetti Pie Falls Instantly In Love With It! You really can’t beat this Spaghetti Pie when you want a delicious and comforting family dinner. My kids adore it (and they’re super picky) and my husband requests it at least once a week.
And I’m a huge fan of it, too. The creamy, cheesy spaghetti filling is addicting and bakes up perfectly. Plus, the homemade meat sauce is absolutely dreamy—and so easy too!
When you combine them together you get one heavenly dinner that you’ll want to make over and over. This is perfect for making for a small family and having leftovers or is great if you’re planning on having a few guests over for dinner.
Ingredients (mix up order)
12 ounces thin spaghetti noodles
1 pound lean ground beef
1 small yellow onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
28 ounce can crushed tomatoes
16 ounce can tomato sauce
1 teaspoon dried basil
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
4 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup ricotta cheese
3/4 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
3/4 cup Mozzarella cheese, shredded
Spray a deep dish pie pan with non-stick cooking spray.
Cook and drain your spaghetti noodles according to directions on package.
When the noodles are done, add the cream cheese, ricotta and a ½ cup of parmesan and mozzarella. Mix until cheeses have just about melted.
Cook the ground meat and onion in skillet until beef is almost browned. Add in garlic, salt and pepper and cook until meat is browned.
Add crushed tomatoes, tomato sauce, basil and oregano to the ground beef and bring to a boil. Simmer on low heat for about 10 minutes.
Mix two cups of the meat sauce with the noodle and cheese mixture. Pour into prepared pie plate and press down.
Top with remaining cheese and bake for 18-20 minutes. Slice and top with remaining meat sauce to serve.
