Tuna Spaghetti Pie Recipe

Publisher Photo
I'm a real pasta fan and I like fish as well, so I decided to combine the two. When my granddaughters are over, I make this dish in tart tins, so each girl can have her own pie. That works for both pint-size and senior-size appetites.—Mrs. Ruth Lee, Troy, Ontario

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 26, 2010

I have made this recipe a couple of times, and this time I used ricotta cheese since I was out of Parmesan cheese and it turned out great!
