Spaghetti Pie

I hate throwing out food, especially if it’s food that I made myself. Heck, I can’t even throw out the strawberry mash that results from making Strawberry Sauce. It ends up in a Strawberry Banana Muffin. So when I had leftover Sausage Pasta, I decided to make a pie the next day. I could have definitely reheated the pasta and eaten it as is, but the golden exterior of the pie is too delicious to pass up.


All I did was mix the leftover pasta and pasta sauce (which I stored separately to prevent soggy noodles), a couple tablespoons of cheese, and an egg together. Then I poured the mixture into a buttered and floured pie plate and sprinkled some more parmesan cheese over top. I baked it for about twenty or so minutes at 400F (the baking time will vary depending on how much leftover pasta you have; adjust accordingly). The pie is done as it is golden brown on the top and bottom.
