Spaghetti Pie

This recipe has become a regular over the years. I have served it over and over again. The combo seems to please everyone tastes, and it is so easy to prepare. Leftovers heat up perfectly, PLUS it is a bit lighter in calories.

I usually serve it with a salad and sometimes some bread sticks or garlic bread.

It looks pretty on a plate!
