mmmm….{Spaghetti Pie}


northern cottage spaghetti pie - comfort food

I’ve had a version of this recipe in my files for years

I got it from a co-worker from one of my first jobs ever (many many ahem…many years ago!)

I was cleaning out the file and happened upon it and thought I’d spiff it up a bit and make it my own

I think the thing that makes this recipe sooo good is the
green pepper.

For those of you who don’t like green pepper…let me tell ya - I’m not usually hooked on green peppers either.  I’m not a haterbut ehhhhI can take em or leave em

for this recipe though – gotta include them

Here’s the lowdown


Get a pot of water boiling and prepare 1/2 # angel hair pasta according to package direction.

While that’s going:

1 # ground beef, browned & drained, return to pan

1/2 green pepper & 1/2 onion, finely diced added the beef & sautéed up

northern cottage 003

Add one jar of your favorite pasta sauce (or homemade if you like)

northern cottage 007

In a large bowl, combine 1 carton cottage cheese, 2 eggs & one cup parmesan cheese (& a couple shakes of garlic salt too)

northern cottage 004

Now your noodles are done…drain them and place in a 9x13 pan

Pour 2 T melted butter over the noodles

Cover with the cottage cheese mixture

Cover with meat sauce

Cover with foil & bake at 350 for 45 minutes

Add a layer of shredded cheese (mozzarella - I used colby jack because it’s what I had on hand) for an additional 5 to 7 minutes until melted and ooey gooey good!

p.s. leftovers are yummy too!

  9. I want. Going to make this tonight for my girlfriend. It's going to blow her mind.

  10. Could you sub Ricotta instead of Cottage. not a fan of cottage cheese.

  11. I used to make this all the time, in fact i am making it right now because my husband saw me pin it and asked me to make it for him on Valentines Day. The recipe I use calls for putting a cup of parmesan cheese in with the noodles. It adds a wonderful flavor and helps the noodles stick together. Yummy!
