Spaghetti Pie, my first attempt

Let me start out by saying I'm so not a recipe follower. I like to throw things together and hope for the best. This time it worked! 



I've never made spaghetti pie but I saw it on Facebook from the Today show and it looked design so what the heck... Let's try it.

My so-called recipe for spaghetti pie:
3/4 pound spaghetti noodles, cooked al dente and drained well
2 large or 3 smaller eggs, whisked
3/4 jar marinara sauce
1/4 cup grated Parmesan 
4 oz. whipped cream cheese
1 can mushrooms, sliced
Italian seasoning
1/2 large onion, diced
1 pound pork sausage
4 to 6 oz. shredded mozzarella or Monterey Jack cheese
Sprinkle of Italian seasoning

Preheat oven to 400 and cook noodles according to pal age directions.

Brown onion and sausage in a pan until cooked through and browned. Meanwhile in a LARGE bowl add eggs, marinara, Parmesan, cream cheese and mushrooms. Stir to combine, breaking up any large chunks of cream cheese. Drain excess fat from sausage and onion mixture and add to bowl. Stir to combine. Add noodles and toss to combine.

Pour or spoon mixture into a greased springform pan. Top with shredded cheese and herbs.

Bake for 30 minutes until cheese is browned. Remove from oven and let sit 5 to 10 minutes. Remove the pie from the pan, cut and serve! Some extra marinara might be a good idea to have on the plate. 


Enjoy!
