Easy Spaghetti & Meatball Pie

Spaghetti & Meatball Pie Square

It really doesn’t get much easier than this 5 ingredient Spaghetti Pie!  Well, okay, maybe, as my oh-so-loving husband was quick to point out, plain spaghetti is a tad bit easier.  But, considering this pie is about 100 times yummier than plain old spaghetti, I think it worth the tiniest extra amount of effort.  In fact, my husband wouldn’t stop making fun of me was just a little skeptical until he took a bite and couldn’t help but admit I was right.  Sweet victory!  Then he said I should call it “Spaghetti Lasagna” since that’s what he thinks it tastes like.  I said that was a dumb name.  He said to say anything else would be false advertising.  I said it was my blog so I win.  The end.

Isn’t marriage awesome? 😉

By the way, this dish is super easy to double for a crowd!

Step 3: Fill large pot with water and bring to a boil; cook noodles according to package directions.


Step 4: Drain noodles; arrange a nest of noodles inside greased pie plate to form “crust” of pie.


Step 5: In large bowl, combine ricotta and Parmesan cheeses.


Step 6: Spread ricotta mixture in over noodles, leaving at least 1″ of noodles showing along the edge.


Step 7: Spread sauce and meatballs over ricotta, again leaving the noodles showing along the edge, and making sure meatballs are evenly spaced. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.

    I’ve never tried anything like this but does it ever sound DELICIOUS! We recently discovered that my daughter, who is anaphylactic to dairy, can now eat baked cheese and milk. This is definitely going on my list of things to make!

    Thanks so much.

    Planning to make this tonight, but will need to use GF Spaghetti. Do you think this recipe could be made ahead of time & then baked later?
