Pas-geddy Pie


PAM spray
2 quarts water
8 oz spaghetti
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon salad oil
1 egg, beaten
1/3 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
1 tablespoon butter, softened
1 cup cottage cheese
1/2 lb lean ground meat or poultry
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped green pepper
1 cup prepared spaghetti sauce
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9-inch pie plate with the PAM spray. In a large sauce pot, bring the water to a boil. Add the spaghetti, salt, and oil. Stirring occasionally, cook for 8 to 10 minutes; drain and rinse with cold water and set aside. In a large bowl, combine egg, Parmesan cheese, and butter. Add spaghetti and toss thoroughly until evenly mixed. Put spaghetti into prepared pie plate and mold to the shape of the plate. This will be the “crust” of the pie. Then, spread cottage cheese over spaghetti crust in the bottom of the pie plate, set aside. Next, cook the meat in a skillet then add onion and green pepper; cook for a few minutes. Add spaghetti sauce to the skillet and mix well. Spoon meat mixture over cottage cheese. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes. Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese and let cool 10 minutes before serving. Enjoy! 

(This makes about 6 servings. To make a 9X13 pan, double up on ingredients.)
