Spinach-Spaghetti Pie

Spinach-Spaghetti Pie

6 ounces spaghetti
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
2 beaten eggs
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 pound bulk pork sausage
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 8 oz can tomato sauce
1 cup cream-style cottage cheese
1 3 ounce package cream cheese, softened
2 beaten eggs
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 10-ounce package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained
1/4 cup soft bread cubes (about 1/2 slice)
1 tablespoon butter or margarine, melted

In saucepan cook spaghetti in a large amount of boiling salted water for 10 - 12 minutes or just till tender; drain (should have about 3 cups cooked spaghetti). Stir the 2 tbsps. butter or margarine into the hot cooked spaghetti Stir in 2 beaten eggs and the 1/2 cup grated parmesan. Form spaghetti mixture into a "crust" in a greased 10 include pie plate.

In a skillet cook pork sausage and chopped onion till meat is browned and onion is tender, drain off excess fat. Stir in the tomato sauce. Spread meat mixture over the spaghetti crust.

Combine the cottage cheese and cream cheese. Stir in the two eggs and half of the remaining Parmesan cheese; set remaining parmesan cheese aside. Fold spinach into cheese mixture; spoon atop meat mixture. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 20 minutes.

Combine bread cubes, the 1 tbsp. butter or margarine, and the remaining Parmesan cheese. Sprinkle atop cheese-spinach mixture. Return to oven and bake 8 - 10 minutes more or until bread cubes brown and filling is set. Let stand 5 to 10 minutes before cutting. Makes 6 servings.

Now for my variations. I just use the regular cottage cheese as that is all I can usually find. I have substituted hamburger, ground chuck or ground turkey for the sausage and still tastes fine. I also use fresh spinach when available and just chop it up. Another time when making it, I realized I did not have the tomato sauce available so substituted spaghetti sauce. Will also sometimes add mushrooms to the meat sauce.
