Here's one from the movie!* All we know about Spaghetti Pie, is that Jenna makes it for Earl for dinner one night, and it's a spaghetti pie. Pretty simple and straight forward. So, I decided to add a garlic bread crust, and let me say-this one was devoured quickly!
All you need are some simple spaghetti staples. Bread, any pasta, ground beef, tomato sauce, garlic sauce mix, and parmesan cheese.
Cube enough bread to line the bottom of a 9" glass pie dish.
Mix olive oil, melted butter, mixed garlic, oregano, salt, and pepper to combine into a paste/sauce...
...and brush generously on to the cubed bread. Bake in the oven until set and starting to brown, and crisp.
While the garlic bread crust is baking, boil your pasta (used linguine here). Cook al dente...
...add tomato sauce when noodles are still very hot so the pasta doesn't clump together.
Add browned ground beef to the noodles and tomato sauce, mix all to combine.
What the garlic bread looks like out of the oven...
...and pour your noodle mixture over the crust. Bake in the oven for another 20-25mins. Cover in foil for the first 15/20 mins, then uncover for the last 5-10 mins.
Grate some fresh parmesan cheese over the hot pie when it comes out of the oven...
...and let it sit for 5-10 mins until slicing! Prepare yourself for a second... third... and possibly fourth slice!
