Reviews for Spaghetti Pie Casserole
"Is this really supposed to be 8 ounces spaghetti? All boxes I see are 16oz. I decided to cook the whole box, but just use half and I think that was the right amount. I added a bit of italian seasoning, and used a 13x9 pan. My husband really liked this! I will make it again."
"We liked this a lot especially because it didn't call for mushroom soup like a lot baked spaghetti recipes.Cookinlovin if you want to submit a recipe please do so,but please just rate this recipe onits merit.Thank you Patricia for sharing your recipe."
"Layer into a large oval slow cooker - works great & keeps warm for serving. Use a liner and there's no clean-up!"
"Very good - will make again. I added italian seasoning, and used a large jar of spaghetti sauce (24 oz), and used hot italian sausage. Also used a 9 x 13 pan."
"This combination of ingredients seems strange (sour cream in spaghetti??) but it works -- this was an excellent recipe! I used all sausage, extra sauce and added some oregano...loved the two cheeses.. No left overs here!"
"This is very similar to my recipe except. Drain the noodles but don't rinse them. Add 2 TSBP butter to the hot noodles, 1/2 cup parmesan cheese and one beaten egg. Mix well and it seems like it isn't going to be good but its great! Press into a pie dish or a baking dish. I use cottage cheese with parmesan cheese and some sweet basil seasoning for the center filling then top with spaghetti sauce of your choice and the last 10 minutes I add mozzarella cheese. It was a family favorite!"
"Used 24oz. pasta sauce and a little italian seasoning but made it as directed the rest of the way. Would not fit in 11x7" pan, used 13x9" and it was perfect. Took to a pot luck and everyone loved it ! Keeper recipe."
"I use my Homemade sauce. Yummy. Also a few other spices."
"I was skeptical after reading the directions but this was amazing. So simple but flavors really blended and came together for a wonderful surprise. Leftovers went very quick."
"Yum! Loved this recipe! Very easy to make and especially tasty to eat. I also used a whole jar (24 oz) of spaghetti sauce and it seemed just right, so don't know what it would have been like with the smaller amount."
