Like most families, we have a list of dishes that have always been a tradition when it comes to putting food on the table. Pasghetti is a dish that has been one of those go-to meals for as long as I can remember.
This recipe brings together the flavors of both pizza and spaghetti in a fun twist. Here’s how you can make it:
Start with your spaghetti “crust.” Boil 1 lb. spaghetti broken into 3 inches pieces until the pasta is al dente. Drain this and run some cold water over the pasta to cool it down. Set this aside for a moment.
Mix up 2 1/2 c. shredded mozzarella cheese, 1 egg, 1/2 c. milk, 1 tsp. garlic powder, and 1/2 tsp. Italian seasoning.
Add the drained and cooled spaghetti and mix well.
Grease a cake sheet pan and evenly spread the mixture into the pan. Bake this at 425 F for 15 minutes.
While the spaghetti bakes, begin browning 1 lb. hamburger with 1/4 c. chopped onion and salt and pepper. Drain this as well. Now, here is where you have an option. You can either mix in 1 jar of your favorite spaghetti sauce with or keep them separate. In this case I mixed them.
Remove the spaghetti crust from the oven and spread the meat sauce mixture over the crust. OR spread the sauce on evenly, and then top with the hamburger.
Top with 1 1/2 c. cheese, because, you can’t ever have enough cheese. In our family we support the dairy industry with a passion. 🙂
It may not be the prettiest thing you’ve ever eaten, but it’ll sure be tasty!
