I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!

Empty-the-Fridge Spaghetti Pie

A couple of days ago we had spaghetti.  My husband made his favourite meat sauce recipe.  It goes like this:

Fry 1 1b ground beef in a pan, breaking it up as you go.  Add 1 can diced tomatoes, 1 can tomato soup and 1 can tomato paste.  That's it.

I looked in the fridge today and saw a bunch of stuff that needed to be used.  Like cooked spaghetti, meat sauce, spinach dip, shredded cheese and cooked broccoli.  This is where it ended up.

Take the cooked spaghetti and mix in eggs, spinach dip (or sour cream) and parmesan or romano cheese. Prepare a pie plate with cooking spray and spread on the spaghetti mixture.

Put the chopped broccoli on top of the spaghetti "crust".
And then layer with meat (or tomato) sauce.
And finally top it off with shredded cheese (I used a pizza mix here) and sprinkle on some more parmesan or romano.

Bake at 350F for 25-30 minutes.

2 cups cooked spaghetti
2 eggs
1/3 cup spinach dip (or sour cream)
1/3 cup parmesan or romano cheese
1 cup chopped cooked broccoli
1  1/2 cups meat (or tomato) sauce
1  1/2 cups shredded cheese
extra parmesan or romano

If you'd like the spinach dip recipe you can find it here.

The shredded cheese leftover was from this recipe.
