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!
