Spaghetti Pie

May 25th, 2010 // Dinner, Most Popular, Recipes

I’m a big fan of local restaurant and marketplace called Clementine. Every time I stop to pick up something there I notice they have a spaghetti pie in their to-go section. I have never actually eaten it but it looks SO GOOD that I decided to try to recreate it. Since my vegetarian husband was home for dinner tonight, my kid and I used meatless meatballs in the recipe. It was really good, but next time I’ll be adding the real deal.

Spaghetti Pie Recipe

Prep Time: 15 mins  Cooing Time: 30 mins

2 large carrots (peeled and diced)
1/2 pound spaghetti
1 15 oz jar good tomato sauce (I use Roa’s brand)
1 cup part skim ricotta cheese
1 egg
1 1/4 cup part skim shredded mozzarella cheese
8 to 10 mini meatballs
1 teaspoon oregano
salt & pepper

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Cook the spaghetti in a pot of boiling water for 6 minutes. Add carrots and cook for another minute or two. Drain and transfer to a large bowl. (Spaghetti should be al dente.) Stir in tomato sauce, 3/4 cup of  mozzarella and ricotta cheese.  Stir well so that spaghetti begins to cool before adding the egg. Then add egg, meatballs, oregano and salt and pepper to taste. Mix well and pour into a 9 inch pie dish. Sprinkle top with remaining 1/2 cup of mozzarella and bake for 20 to 30 minutes or until top is golden brown and bubbly and pie is set. Let cool for 5 minutes before slicing. Serves 4 to 6.

    we do something similar in Malta … here's the recipe (for 1 person):

    50g/75g of capellini pasta (I think it's the same as angel hair pasta)
    1 egg
    Some butter or olive oil

    Cook the pasta.
    In the meantime beat the egg, add the pepper and parsley. You can also add cheese, sun dried tomatoes, herbs, etc. Make it to your liking :)
    Once the pasta is done, mix it in with the egg mixture.
    Heat a frying pan and add either a little olive oil or butter … not much is needed, just enough so that it won't stick to the pan.
    Put in the mixture and cook until golden brown. Don't forget to turn it round to cook it from the other side!

    I suggest that you eat it while it's still hot …. Enjoy! :)

    we do something similar with our leftover pastas. We call it "Pasta Pie", and basically same thing, but we use left overs and a TON of fresh mozza. My little niece loves to help out and she has the important job of adding the cheese!

    Made this tonight with great success! Husband and bro-in-law gave it a 9/10 which is amazing for a pasta dish because they are Nepalese and prefer a more curry-flavorful fare. Even the little one loved it!- picking up pieces of the pasta and sauce (8 months old) – i mixed in some macaroni noodles to cut up for him. :-) THANKS for your awesome recipes!
