Ingredients

  • 8 ounces spaghetti noodles
  • 1 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil leaves , chopped
  • 3 Tablespoons butter
  • 1 large egg
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper , to taste
  • 1 cup cottage cheese
  • 1 1/2 cups marinara pasta sauce , homemade or a 12 oz. jar

Instructions

  • Lightly grease a deep 9'' or 10'' pie plate with cooking spray.
  • Cook spaghetti noodles according to package directions. Drain, and add hot noodles to a large bowl.
  • In a small bowl, beat the egg. Add the butter and the hot pasta. Toss until butter is melted.  
  • Add parmesan cheese, basil, and a little salt and pepper and toss everything gently to combine.
  • Empty pasta mixture into prepared pie pan and pat down tight. 
  • Spread cottage cheese evenly over the top of the pasta. 
  • Spoon your favorite spaghetti sauce over top and smooth into an even layer.
  • Bake at 350 degrees F for 20 minutes. 
  • Allow to cool for 5-10 minutes before slicing into wedges and serving.

Notes

*You can substitute ricotta cheese for the cottage cheese.
*This recipe fits a deep dish pie pan. If you don't have a deep dish pie pan than I would suggest making this in an 8x8'' square (or similar size) casserole dish.
