Spinach-Beef Spaghetti Pie Recipe

With its angel hair pasta crust, this cheesy ground beef, tomato and spinach pie is always a hit when I serve it. Each neat slice has layers of pasta, cream cheese filling and spinach topping. —Carol Hicks Pensacola, Florida

"Thank god I remembered I saw this recipe here. This is by far the most delicious Spag pie I ever tasted. When I don't have spinach I use swiss chard. I think the cream cheese is what makes it! I'm going to put some ricotta in it tonight to see how it goes with the cream cheese."
