Excellent. I've been making spaghetti Pie for 30+ years and this is just wonderful. A great variation on an old time favorite. Thanks, Kim, for sharing a great recipe.

Since I only feed two people I could make this in a smaller quantity---I did thirds---and it was great and fast.

I grew up alsways making extra spaghetti noodles when we had big pasta dinner night. We would bag the extra noodles up in a zip lock with a drizzle of oil, and the next day we would make Spaghetti Pie, which is identical to this recipe. The whole concept is VERY flexible, I have started making it and realized I was low on mozzerella, so topped it off with some chedder jack. I have also made it and tossed in a couple crumbled meatballs, or one one occasion a thin layer of riccota. This is a terrific way to freshen up leftovers.
