I made this for my coworkers, who all raved. I used ricotta cheese instead of cottage, and I think I liked it better that way. Plus, I made too much spaghetti, so I layered it in a 13 x 9 pan instead of a pie pan, and it worked great.
Sorry - but this was more bother than it was worth. Unless you are using up left overs this was nothing great - not horrible just ordinary. Should have just made spaghetti or lasagna.
YUM! This recipe ROCKS! I've been making a very similar version of this one for at least 30 years now. It's such a unique twist on a way to use up spaghetti. It always comes out tasting great and as for presentation, well let's just say it gets lots of "OOhs & Aahs"... Especially when you serve it to someone who's not heard of it before. I would strongly suggest cooking it in the 10 inch glass pyrex pie plate rather than changing it up to a 9 x 13 baking pan. This was the original way it was intended and though I have tried it both ways, I think the "Pie" version makes for a better presentation. Add this one to your archives; I doubt you'll be disappointed.
I made this for dinner last night and it was great! Of course, I changed it a little. Instead of spaghetti noodles, I used angel hair pasta and made it in a 9x13 pan. I don't like the texture of cottage cheese, and didn't have any ricotta, so I put the cottage cheese in a food processor and mixed it with some dried basil, garlic powder and a pinch of salt until it was smooth. I used frozen cocktail meatballs instead of ground beef and a jar of Ragu. I cooked it for about 35 minutes. Everyone enjoyed it and it was very simple!!
I have been making this for years. Although, i mix all of the spaghetti with the sauce and pour 1/2 of spaghetti into pan, add cheese mixture, then top with rest of spaghetti and then add cheese topping. Makes spaghetti not so dry..
I love this recipe, but I am a low maintenance, jar of this, box of that type cook. I use pasta, sauce, eggs, ricotta, butter, parmesan, mozzarella, and ground beef. I used three eggs. Be sure not to mix them too quickly with the hot pasta or they will scramble. After making that mistake once I learned to temper the eggs first with a little pasta at a time. The egg makes the pasta taste so hearty…yummy! My mom used to make this all the time in her big 13 x 9 glass pan…memories.
We loved this! I made a double recipe in a large Pyrex so we would have leftovers. I added a mixture of cheddar and mozzarella on top and covered it with foil before baking as we are cheese lovers. I also substituted Ricotta for the cottage cheese. I can't wait to heat up the leftovers! Served it with crusty garlic bread and fresh fruit-yum!
DH was asking for the spaghetti pie I used to make when we were first married, and I couldn’t find my recipe. This is the closest I could find, and really good! Better than what I used to make, according to my DH.
I used lean ground turkey instead of the beef. I doubled the recipe and cooked in a 9x13 pan, because we wanted leftovers. I seasoned the turkey with a little seasoned salt while it was cooking with the garlic, onion and tomato to add flavor. I used store- brand jarred spaghetti sauce instead of the canned tomatoes & paste, and added 1/2 of a 4-ounce can of tomato sauce to spaghetti sauce while it was cooking, so it wouldn't be too dry. I also seasoned it with a little oregano and crushed red pepper. The only other thing I changed was to use 3 eggs instead of 4 (the doubled amount) in the noodle mixture, and I blended the cottage cheese in the blender so there weren't any large curds, because DH doesn't like cottage cheese.
I also cooked it for about 30 minutes before adding the cheese. It may be because my oven doesn’t get hot enough,
Overall, great recipe!
