Ground Turkey Spaghetti Pie Recipe

Ground Turkey Spaghetti Pie Recipe

This pie is practically a meal in itself. I usually put a green salad and crusty French rolls on the table with it.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Bake: 15 min. YIELD:2 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 ounces uncooked spaghetti, broken in half
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 3 tablespoons sour cream
  • 1/2 pound ground turkey
  • 1/4 cup chopped green pepper
  • 2 tablespoons chopped onion
  • 1 teaspoon butter
  • 1/3 cup tomato sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/3 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese

Directions

  • 1. Cook spaghetti according to package directions; drain. In a small bowl, combine the egg, Parmesan cheese and spaghetti. Press spaghetti mixture onto the bottom and up sides of a greased shallow 2-cup baking dish or 7-in. pie plate. Spread with sour cream.
  • 2. Crumble turkey into a skillet; add the pepper, onion and butter. Cook over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Stir in the tomato sauce, garlic salt, oregano, salt and pepper. Spoon into spaghetti crust. Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese. Cover edges loosely with foil.
  • 3. Bake at 350° for 15-20 minutes or until heated through and cheese is melted. Serve immediately. Yield: 2 servings.
