I don't know where this week went? It seems as if yesterday was Monday and here it is Friday already. Spring is always a busy time of year for us, spring sports, dance recitals, field trips, ending the school year, planning for the summer and starting college again. Did you catch that last one? Yep, I will officially be a college student again next week. One year to go!
Meals need to be simple and easy for us. Do you feel like sometimes in the hustle and bustle it is meal time that sacrifices? I do. We are trying to plan meals which can be made ahead and kept in the refrigerator or frozen until needed! There is nothing better than knowing on a busy night that I have a good healthy dinner in the refrigerator which can be placed in the oven and done in 20 minutes!
Spaghetti Pie is one of those meals. Sometimes I'll make a double batch and we'll eat one and freeze one for later! It is one of my favorite time savers...double a recipe and freeze one for later!
8oz Spaghetti noodles cooked
2 Tbls Margarine
1/2 cup Parmesan Cheese
1 cup cottage cheese
1 tsp Italian seasoning (or to taste)
1 jar of spaghetti sauce or 2 cups of homemade spaghetti sauce
1 cup mozzarella cheese
Combine cooked spaghetti noodles, margarine, Parmesan cheese and eggs. Form the spaghetti mixture into a crust in a buttered 9 or 10 inch pan.
Mix cottage cheese and Italian seasonings. Spread cottage cheese over spaghetti crust.
Pour spaghetti sauce over the cottage cheese and edges of crust.
Sprinkle mozzarella cheese over pie.
