Want a fun and tasty dinner? This easy spaghetti and meatball pie recipe comes together in just minutes and is sure to become a family favorite!

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.

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