Spaghetti Sausage Pie


6 oz. dried spaghetti
1 beaten egg

1/3 cup grated Paramesan cheese
1 Tbs. unsalted butter, cut up

1 more beaten egg
1 cup cottage cheese

1/8 freshly ground black pepper
1/2 lb. bulk pork Italian sausage

1/2 tsp. granulated onion
8 oz. can pizza sauce

1/2 cup of shredded mozzarella


Cook spaghetti according to package directions; drain well. To make spaghetti crust, in a medium mixing bowl combine 1 beaten egg with parmesan cheese and butter. Add cooked spaghetti; toss well. Press spaghetti mixture against the bottom and sides of a well-greased 9-inch pie pan to form an even crust.

In a small mixing bowl, combine remaining beaten egg with cottage cheese, and pepper. Spread over prepared spaghetti crust in pie pan; set aside.

Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook sausage until browned and cooked throughout; drain fats. Stir in pizza sauce; cook until heated through. Spoon mixture over cottage cheese mixture; cover loosely with foil.

Bake, covered, in preheated 350 degree oven for 20 minutes. Remove foil; sprinkle with mozzarella. Bake, uncovered, for 5-10 minutes longer or until mozzarella is melted and bubbly. Let stand 5 minutes before slicing into wedges.
