This was called poor man's lasagna when I was a kid.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Brown ground beef in a large skillet over medium heat until crumbly and no longer pink, about 10 minutes. Drain and set aside in a bowl. Cook and stir onion and green bell pepper in the same skillet until onion is translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir onion, green pepper, and spaghetti sauce into ground beef.
  3. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook spaghetti in the boiling water, stirring occasionally until cooked through but firm to the bite, about 10 minutes. Drain and transfer to a bowl. Let pasta cool slightly and stir beaten eggs and Parmesan cheese into spaghetti.
  4. Spread spaghetti mixture into a 9x13-inch baking dish. Spread ricotta cheese over pasta mixture in an even layer; top with ground beef mixture. Sprinkle mozzarella cheese evenly over the top of the casserole.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until the casserole is set in the center and the cheese topping is melted and lightly browned, about 35 minutes.

I also make this recipe, only I use cottage cheese instead of ricotta. This is a favorite of my two kids, they love to eat spoonfuls of this between two pieces of garlic bread. This is a great cheap meal to make that bends and stretches well to use what you have on hand and also to feed the family more than one day.

We thought this was good. I had to add some garlic salt to the meat for flavor. The ricotta was hard to spread evenly. I think next time I will mix the egg, parm, and ricotta with the noodles and then spread in the pan. For the reviewer who didn't like the pasta sticking together- Remember the spaghetti is supposed to be stuck together- hence the name, pie.

this is an old family favorite...I make it with a bit more seasoning, and addition of sausage and a layer veggies.
