Spaghetti pie is a fairly new idea to me…I know, I’ve been living under a rock. My mom-in-law introduced me to it, when she made it for us on our last visit home about a year ago. As soon as I saw how much Arik enjoyed it, I knew it needed a spot in the blog.

And here I am, a whole year later, finally posting this delicious recipe. I always use this recipe for meat sauce or bolognese, since it’s got lots of veggies in it. My freezer is pretty much never without it, which is a good thing since it is such a versatile sauce. If you don’t have any frozen away and don’t feel like making a new batch, you could always just use your favorite jarred version. Once you have the sauce, the rest of the process is easy as pie :) so give it a try. Your kids will love the idea of spaghetti as a pie!
