Meatless Spaghetti Pie Recipe

Pasta shows its versatility as a "pie crust" in Carol Beyerl's family-pleasing main dish. "This is a combination of several recipes. I came up with it when I didn't have all the ingredients to make any one of them," she writes from Ellensburg, Washington. A nice alternative to lasagna, the saucy entree doesn't taste light.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 25 min. + standing YIELD:6 servings


  • 6 ounces uncooked spaghetti
  • 1/2 cup egg substitute
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese, divided
  • 3 ounces reduced-fat cream cheese

  • 1/2 cup chopped green pepper
  • 1/2 pound fresh mushrooms, sliced
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 cups meatless spaghetti sauce
  • 1/2 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese


  • 1. Cook spaghetti according to package directions; drain. Add the egg substitute and 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese. Press onto the bottom and up the sides of a 9-in. deep-dish pie plate coated with cooking spray. In a bowl, beat the cream cheese, sour cream, green pepper and remaining Parmesan cheese. Spread over spaghetti crust.

"I would increase the cooking time to thirty minutes. Twenty minutes was too runny!"

"Delicious!! You can sub in your favorite fresh veges for the mushrooms and green peppers depending on the season. This is one is a family favorite when we go to the beach. I make it ahead and it travels well."

"I sextupled this recipe (dividing it between two 14"-16" deep dish pizza pans) for a birthday party where the ages of the 17 guests ranged from age 3 to over 60 and it was a huge hit! Even the pickiest eater (a five year old) kept telling me how good it was and asked for seconds. Since not everyone is a fan of veggies, I substituted a total of 2.5 lbs extra lean ground turkey (seasoned according to the directions for Homemade Italian turkey Sausage) for the green peppers and mushrooms. As a side note, sextupling the recipe is perfect for about 25 guests or if you want leftovers to enjoy later, which is exactly what we did!"
