Complicated Spaghetti Pie

Posted by terrepruitt on May 8, 2023

In May of 2021 I made Spaghetti Pie. I loved it. I love pasta, but I don’t necessarily like tomato sauce, so I loved that this allowed for a hint of it, but it didn’t saturate all of the pasta. But I also am interested in getting more protein so of course I had to complicate it with meat. But it is good.


Spaghetti Pie

Olive oil
1/2 cup chopped onions
1 lb of ground beef

16 ounces of dried spaghetti
4 eggs
1 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese – divided
2 tablespoon Italian seasoning
1 tablespoon chopped garlic

1 cup ricotta
1 1/2 cup mozzarella – divided
1 1/2 cup sauce

aluminum foil
parchment paper
springform pan

Heat some olive oil then add the onion. Cook onion for a bit, then add the ground beef. Cook the ground beef – chopping it up as necessary. Season with salt and pepper if you’d like.  Remember the meat is going to be in the oven for at least 45 minutes.

Cook the spaghetti (with salt if that is how you regularly cook your pasta).

While the pasta is cooking, beat the eggs.

Drain the spaghetti. Mix the cooked, drained spaghetti with the beaten eggs, 1/2 cup of the Parmesan cheese, the Italian seasoning, and the chopped garlic.

Line the springform pan (bottom and sides) with aluminum foil then with parchment paper. (I use both because the pie tends to leak out of my pan.) Brush the parchment paper with oil.  Put about half of the spaghetti mixture in a baking dish/pan. Layer the cooked meat over the spaghetti, leaving a blank circle in the middle. Then add the rest of the spaghetti and make a well in the middle. Put the ricotta cheese in the middle. Sprinkle the ricotta with 3/4 cup of the mozzarella. Put the sauce on top of the ricotta. Sprinkle the sauce with the rest of the mozzarella and Parmesan.

Bake at 375° F for 45 minutes or until done. Then broil for 2 minutes.

Slice like a pie and serve.


I really like this. I don’t like spaghetti with sauce the regular way, but I like it in pie form.  And it really isn’t difficult or complicated, but I just laugh because I always seem to take a really quick easy recipe and add a step or two to make it “complicated”.

What about you – how do you like your spaghetti?

Let me hear it. What have you got to say about this post?
