This doubly delicious all-in-one Italian-style main dish meal is sure to have everyone running to the table. Pepperoni Spaghetti Pie looks as good as it tastes, and like its name...it's easy-as-pie!

What You'll Need:
  • 1/2 pound cooked spaghetti
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil or melted butter
  • 2 large eggs, well beaten
  • 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese, divided
  • 1 cup ricotta cheese
  • 1 cup spaghetti sauce
  • 1/4 cup sliced pepperoni, about 20 slices
  • 1/2 cup (2 ounces) shredded mozzarella cheese
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 10-inch pie plate with cooking spray.
     
  2. In a large bowl, toss spaghetti with olive oil. In a small bowl, combine eggs and 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese. Stir into spaghetti then pour into prepared pie plate, and form into a "crust."  Spread ricotta evenly over crust, but not quite to edge.Top with spaghetti sauce and pepperoni slices.
     
  3. Bake uncovered 25 minutes, then top with mozzarella; bake 5 more minutes, or until cheese melts.
     
  4. Remove from oven and sprinkle with remaining Parmesan cheese. Cool 10 minutes before slicing into wedges.

Made this for dinner last night. Didn't have any good Parmesan on hand, so I used Pecorino Romano instead. Added a pinch or two dried Italian herbs to egg-and-cheese mixture, and also to the sauce, which was leftover marinara resurrected from the freezer. Had half a red bell pepper, so chopped that and added to the sauce; it added some interesting texture chunks and flavor bursts. I didn't measure, but suspect that I used somewhat more pepperoni than called for. But we love pepperoni here! I made a mistake and added the shredded mozzarella before putting it in the oven, rather than the last few minutes, but the dish turned out just perfect! Very tasty! Like a lot of recipes, this one is sort of a blank slate that you can make so many of your own modifications to, with great results! Thaks, Mr. Food!

What are the green things in the photo? Not mentioned in the ingredient list? Possibly green pepper strips? Looks tasty and I will make for tonite dinner.

looks like fresh basil which has been sliced....

Yup, it is sliced basil for garnish!
