HOMEMADE SPAGHETTI PIE RECIPE
6 oz spaghetti
(I use 2 pkgs of Ramen noodles for the spaghetti. Cook as directed)
2 TBS butter
1/3 cup parmesan cheese
2 eggs, well beaten
1 lb ground beef
1-1/2 cups mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup chopped green pepper
1/2 cup chopped mushrooms
8 oz can chopped tomatoes with juice to make 1 cup
6 oz can tomato paste
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 cup cottage cheese
With this mixture, form a crust and press into a 10" pie plate and up the sides. Spread cottage cheese over the bottom of the crust and set aside.
PREHEAT oven to 350 degrees.
Cook burger, onions, mushrooms and green peppers together. When burger is cooked, add the undrained tomatoes, tomato paste, sugar, oregano and garlic. Heat through and pour into the spaghetti crust.
Bake, uncovered for 20 minutes. Sprinkle with mozzarella and return to the oven until the cheese has melted; approximately 5 minutes.
Best Garlic Butter Spread for Garlic Bread
This is my favorite flavored butter recipe because this butter goes with so many things it would be impossible to list them all.
I usually triple the recipe, divide into equal portions and roll into logs - then freeze them. That way you always have this on hand at a moments notice to put on fish, slip under the skin of chicken, or melt over a New York strip steak.
Just slice a loaf of homemade French bread
horizontally (lengthwise)** and spread on this magical garlic butter
(you may add shredded mozzarella on top - a must in Wisconsin). Bake it
in the oven until golden brown. Out of this world.
1 cup homemade unsalted butter
1 TBS garlic, minced
1/4 cup parmesan cheese
1 TBS homemade garlic powder
1 tsp homemade Italian seasoning
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
kosher salt to taste
1/4 tsp paprika
In a bowl, combine the butter, garlic and parmesan cheese. Season with the remaining ingredients and mix until smooth.
**You may also slice on the diagonal.
