Reviews forSpaghetti Pie Casserole
"This was delicious! I used up some leftover “ unsauced” spaghetti because I always make too much and added an egg and Parmesan cheese to it. I skipped the cheddar cheese and layered fresh mozzarella and sprinkled fresh parsley on top. Finished at the end under the broiler for just a few minutes. I agree with others, reminded me of lasagna but better. Definitely a keeper!"
"I made this yesterday. I usually make it just as written the first time but I did not have ground beef so I used hot Italian sausage. Took the casing off, broke it up as it browned. Added the onion AND mushrooms that needed to be used. It turned out great. I agree with another reviewer, it's similar to lasagna. My only suggestion would be to spread the cooked spaghetti in the casserole pan while it's still hot. Allowing it to cool makes it stick together and is almost impossible to spread. Lesson learned ! I did add Italian seasoning to the meat sauce for more flavor, as suggested by another reviewers. Good recipe. Thanks, Patricia"
"Very good. Reminds me of a combination of lasagna and spaghetti mixed together and you come up with this. Don't be afraid to add seasonings to this to make it your own. Serve with a fresh tossed salad and garlic sticks."
"This was good! I made my own sauce and added saesonings. Very easy and delicious."
"Good solid recipe but PLEASE, cook meat first, drain, then add ingredients. NEVER, EVER drain after adding them because you just pour your flavor down the drain."
"The dairy layer adds a little extra surprise to this simple casserole. Also, I have health issues so I particularly like that I can make this earlier in the day and bake it off at dinner time. I can even go with a bottle of sauce as written or use homemade if I feel up to it. This is a PERFECT recipe for me and my family."
"This was too cheesy for us. We also thought it needed some spices; maybe Italian seasoning."
"I used a 24 oz can of spaghetti sauce. I think next time I will add some hot sausage to it like I do our usual spaghetti and kick it up a notch!"
"Amazing!! Yum yum yum! I will make this again and again! Yum yum yum!"
