Spaghetti Pie

016

Instead of your normal spaghetti why not try this version with a twist. It uses all inexpensive ingredients that are easy to find at the grocery store. It is a great make ahead meal and the portions can be modified to feed even a bigger crowd. I serve this with my Easy Peasy Breadsticks and I round it off with a salad. Everything together makes a complete meal.

You can also freeze this after you bake it, then warm it up before serving. So this makes it a great make ahead meal. For those of us with a larger extended family, this dish is perfect. You can modify it and use more veggies instead of the sausage or you can use the vegetarian sausage if you want to serve it during Lent. I have a lot of vegetarian family members and I use the fake sausage, or I double up on the mushrooms and completely omit the sausage all together.

Either way, this is a win win recipe for everyone.
