Favorite Recipes: Spaghetti Pie

4 ounces dried spaghetti
1 tbsp butter
1 beaten egg
1/4 cup grated Parmesan
8 ounces ground beef
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup green pepper
1 8 oz can tomato sauce
1 cup cottage cheese drained
1/2 cup mozzarella cheese

Cook spaghetti according to directions. Drain and return to warm saucepan. Stir butter into hot pasta until melted then add egg and Parmesan; set aside. Meanwhile in a medium skillet cook ground beef, onion, sweet pepper until meat is brown and onion is tender. Drain and stir in tomato sauce and heat through. Coat a 9 in pie plate with nonstick cooking spray. Press spaghetti mixture onto bottom and up sides forming a crust. Spread cottage cheese on top of crust and then meat mixture over top of that. Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese and bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes. To serve cut into wedges. Makes 6 servings.

When I make this recipe, I double it and make it in a 11x9 rectangular pan to feed 8.
