How to Turn Spaghetti Leftovers into Spaghetti Pie

spaghetti-pie

There’s not very many comfort foods I love more than a warm plate of spaghetti.  My mom’s spaghetti sauce can take your mom’s any day of the week. It’s one of my favorite dishes on earth. And it’s one of those recipes she’s never written down, but made for decades. We ate spaghetti almost every week growing up, and now it’s one of my kids’ favorites too!

But sometimes the leftovers just don’t do it justice. I’m ready for a new twist – something that keeps the flavor, but makes it feel like a new meal. That’s why I love taking the leftovers and making it into Spaghetti Pie the next day with easy ingredients that I already have on hand. (You can also make this from the beginning by making spaghetti according to your regular recipe, and then following the following instructions.)

    I’m a little slow. Was just looking at the recipe, then glanced over at the kiddos and I was thinking, “Wow, they all look so much a like!” And then I noticed the whole quad thing. :)

    Anyway, trying the recipe tonight. My husband said he was tired of leftovers. What he doesn’t know won’t hurt him, right? :)
