Spaghetti Pie

This is a great dish to use up leftover spaghetti and sauce. Or you can make spaghetti and sauce specifically for this pie, because it's yummy enough to not wait until you have the leftovers!

Wo is me for I had to take these pictures in the awful evening lighting again!

Spaghetti Pie
About 8 oz. spaghetti, cooked
1 or 2 eggs (recipe calls for 2, I got away with using 1)
2/3 cup shredded cheese
Some thick and chunky spaghetti sauce (I used 1/4 lb. ground beef cooked with celery and carrot, then added tomato paste, diced tomatoes, garlic, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper, and some brown sugar)
More shredded cheese (mozzarella) for topping

Combine drained spaghetti with egg and shredded cheese. Press into a greased 9-inch pie plate. Spoon spaghetti sauce over spaghetti crust. Cover with foil. Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes. Remove foil and top with shredded mozzarella. Bake for an additional 3-5 minutes until cheese is melted. Slice and serve!
