Spicy Spaghetti Pie
From Cook's Country
This spaghetti pie recipe takes the classic flavors of meaty lasagna and turns them into a quick and easy pie-shaped casserole. For bolder flavor, we replaced the mild mozzarella and plain ground beef typically used in spaghetti pie recipes with a Mexican cheese blend and pepperoni. We found that thin pastas such as vermicelli or thin spaghetti took on the round shape of the pie plate and still supported the weight of the sauce and that pressing the cooked pasta into the pie plate with a spatula ensured the surface cooked evenly and the slices held together. We made sure to liberally season the water in which the pasta was cooked; otherwise the casserole tasted bland.
Serves 4 to 6
Thin spaghetti can be used in place of vermicelli.
