Spaghetti & Meatball Pie

6 ounce uncooked spaghetti

2 tablespoon butter

1/3 cup Parmesan cheese

2 eggs, lightly beaten

8 ounce marscapone cheese

16 meatballs, thawed and cut in half

1 1/2 cups marinara sauce

1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

salt and pepper, to taste

Preheat the oven to 350. Cook the spaghetti and drain. Return to the pan and add butter, Parmesan cheese, eggs and salt & pepper (to taste). Mix well. Place pasta mixture in a greased pie pan, pressing down slightly to form a "crust". Spread marscapone over noodles and then top with meatball halves. Pour marinara sauce over meatballs and sprinkle with mozzarella cheese. Cover with foil (sprayed with cooking spray so it doesn't stick) and bake for 20-25 minutes. Remove from the oven and let sit for 5-10 minutes, and then cut into slices and serve.

My notes: I didn't have meatballs, but I did have some sausage, so I just cooked and crumbled some sausage instead. It was yummy!


  1. Last time I posted it took out all my returns, now it added extra in...

  2. I made this today, April 16, 2011, for our lunch. I remember making something like this years ago when we had such special children in our home. I started thinking as I made it--for a family you could put it in a 13x9-inch pan--increasing the incredients three times and serve it from there! Maybe this would be an excellent dish for a ward potluck dinner!!!
    I will need to remember this recipe and idea!

  3. I think this recipe would make a great "freezer" meal, to keep on hand in your freezer for a busy day. Just don't add the mozzarella cheese until it's baked; then sprinkle the cheese on and cook for a few more minutes until the cheese melts and bubbles.
