“This was called poor man's lasagna when I was a kid.” - by Patty
Original recipe yields 6 servings
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.

For the reviewer who didn't like the pasta sticking together- Remember the spaghetti is supposed to be stuck together- hence the name, pie."
"I followed the recipe as written. This was good, although the spaghetti was all suck together when I was trying to serve it up on the plates. I did add a little oil when i cooked the pasta to preven..." See moret the stickiness. The ricotta cheese was not melted enough for me, so I will bake it for a little longer next time. The problem may have been I made it earlier in the day and put it in the frig for a couple of hours before baking it. I also though it was alot of extra work for a pasta dinner. I am not sure if I will make again, but it was enjoyed by the family."
