Spaghetti Pie


Yesterday I was very hungry for Spaghetti, but I just felt like I didn’t want our normal Spaghetti. After a quick search on the Internet I found this recipe for Spaghetti pie. Of course I can’t just follow a recipe with out adding or leaving out ingredients that I feel will make it better.

My Version

Browned 1lb. hamburger, then added one can of spaghetti sauce and one small can of tomato sauce, seasoned with salt pepper and garlic salt.

Cooked my spaghetti noodles as normal in boiling water.

In a small bowl I mixed 8 ounces of cream cheese and 3/4 cup sour cream.

In a 9x12 baking dish lightly greased I layered the Spaghetti, cream cheese mixture, then the meat sauce. I sprinkled some green onion, mushrooms and black olives, then covered this with shredded cheese.

Baked in a preheated oven for 25 minutes covered then an additional 10 minutes uncovered.

Now what changes would I make the next time I make this, I think I would cut down on the cream cheese and sour cream mixture, one could even cut it in half. This seemed pretty rich and I feel it would be just as good with just a little less of the richness.

We really enjoyed this dish and I served it with a tossed green salad and French bread. Michael really enjoyed it and he isn’t much of a spaghetti eater, of course it was a hard sell for Selena, but hey even when I make spaghetti she pretty much only picks out the noodles. Out side of seeming very rich when you got into the cream cheese and sour cream mixture, I thought it was very delicious. Would be a great easy meal for company, or a potluck, of course a great family meal.

Pin It


  1. It sounds delicious. I may want to try it some time.

  2. I so don't see Anna eating it either. For some reason she hates mushrooms and refuses to eat them even when it means "no dessert".

  3. I'm trying to decide how it would go over in my house........
