This is a recipe hubby really enjoys, but one that I don’t think to make all the time. It’s super easy to make and very filling. I made this one with sweet Italian sausage, but you could use hot sausage or even ground beef instead if you prefer. Here’s how I made it.
Sausage And Spaghetti Pie
- 1 lb thin spaghetti
- 2 lb ground Italian sausage
- 15 oz ricotta cheese
- 12 oz shredded mozzarella cheese
- 2 eggs
- 2 tbsp butter
- salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 350 f.
Boil the spaghetti until it’s al dente.
Spray a large baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
When the spaghetti is cooked, drain. Mix the eggs with the pasta and then distribute evenly in the baking dish.
Gently spread the ricotta cheese across the spaghetti.
Sprinkle 8 oz of the shredded mozzarella across the ricotta cheese.
Distribute the cooked sausage across the baking pan.
Pour the sauce over the sausage, making sure it extends to cover the top of everything.
Sprinkle the remaining mozzarella on top.
Bake for 20 minutes, or until top cheese is melted.
Serve immediately, with salt and pepper to taste.
