Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I love spaghetti, but I am not sure about this recipe. I am afraid cooking it that way would make the noodles hard or dry. I do love ricotta cheese though. Maybe placing lasagna noodles as the 'crust' would work better for me. I think I may try it that way and see how it goes.

My mom made this many times for us growing up and now my kids love it! We usually serve it with meatballs on the side as my kids sometimes decide they don't want meat. Has anyone frozen sections of the pie after it's been cooked? We have so much leftover and hate to waste it!

My fussy family liked this. Added meat and more sauce. Will add it to my frequent meals.

Just wondering if you may know the calorie count for this

Have made this keeper many times. Very flexible, can add toppings just like a pizza!

How much would be considered a serving

Made this for dinner tonight, changed it up by frying some mild italian sausage and crumbling it up, topping the pie along with some pepperoni. It was good, but still not spicy enough for me. Next time I'll add hot italian sausage and some red pepper flakes. But the spaghetti pie is winner winner spaghetti dinner!

I you want "spicy" simply ad red pepper flakes if you want a more true Italian taste add oregano basil and garlic powder to the spaghetti sauce

Do you suppose this could be made in an electric skillet? Sounds wonderfully easy and delicious ( my two favorite ingredients) but it's really too hot to heat up the oven. BTW, I'm looking for recipes for my new electric skillet, so any suggestions would be greatly welcome truly appreciated!

Mr. Food: You are a keeper Chef and the best. This was delicious. Keep more wonderful recipes coming. It tasted sooooooo good.

hi mr food, all of your recipies that i have made thus far. have been truly outstanding & delicious, I thank you, I was trying to watch the video for your spaghetti pie, I could hear your voice, but the screen is blank & black.

What I do is use creamy - style coottage cheese, and cooked Italian bulk sausage add to the spaghetti sauce (I use jar sauce). I put some sauce on top of the pasta then the cottage cheese then rest of sauce. and follow the recipe that's list above.

To Vel, You could use fat free cottage cheese in place of mozarella and egg beaters in place of the real eggs to cut down the calorie count. I have done this in the past and just added a few more herbs for flavor and it came out fine.

What is a half pound of pasta? How do you know what a half pound is? I feelso stupid

Skweez - There is no such thing as a stupid question. If you don't know the answer to something never hesitate to ask. No one comes into this world knowing everything. Dry pasta comes in packages with the weight written on the label such as 8 oz, 16 oz. etc. 16 ounces is equal to 1 pound. 8 ounces is equal to 1/2 pound.

I love the recipes but have to watch.Could you please start listing the calories for the recipes. Thank-you Vel

This looks so goooood. Would like to see calories listed. THANKS.... for a starter... BUT the same product can have fewer or more calories, carbs, protein, etc. depending on the maker/brand. If you want the calorie count of the recipe YOU are fixing; take all the calorie numbers off the box, container, jar (what-ever) that you are using. You can come up with the serving amount that would be closer to correct then equations from someone else... Hope this helps.

I found a different one you can just type in the recipe and it will figure it out for you. I haven't tried it so hope it works for you.

Quick, very easy and perfect use of leftovers. It was delish, have a second one in the freezer.

I always make two and save one for the freezer for a quick dinner. I take it out of freezer in the morning and bake it when I get home from work.

Spaghetti pie sounds wonderful and am anxious to try it. Did Mr. Food ever think of putting the calorie etc. information on the bottom of his recpes? Am a Weight Watcher and would appreciate that.

I added small Italian meatballs to the top before the cheese goes on. It was yummy!

I added onions and black olives.
