Easy Spaghetti Pie

Have you ever heard of spaghetti pie? It is delicious and simple but what if you have even less time than you need to make it? You cheat! Haha, here is my shortcut extra easy spaghetti pie.

The original recipe I use calls for eggs and parmesan cheese to be mixed with the cooked noodles. Then you layer the cheese mixture with the meat sauce and bake it until bubbly.

This "recipe" is even easier, if you can believe it. I hesitate to call it a recipe because it was so easy. I'm not even going to give you a complete list of quantities since I used leftovers to create it. 

Here are the ingredients I used.

1/2 package of cooked Spaghetti
1 package of Meatballs (or homemade)
1 jar of Marinara sauce (or homemade)
1 container of Cottage cheese
1 tsp. Italian seasoning
1/2 cup Mozzarella cheese
Parmesan cheese, to taste
Salt & Pepper, to taste

I simply placed the pasta in the bottom of the bowl with seasoned cottage cheese next. On top of that I put the sauce with meatballs in it. I popped it in the microwave to heat it through. Then I topped it with parmesan and mozzarella cheeses, but you could also use a oven safe dish to heat it all up and melt the cheese. 

It was delicious and not too far from the original with less effort.

I have eaten baked spaghetti but never spaghetti pie. It kinda reminds me of lasagna but much quicker. I am always on the lookout for new simple recipes.
