Spaghetti Pie

My friend Kristy emailed me this recipe to post. She says it's a great one, especially for people with kids, since kids love it!

Spaghetti Pie

1/2 lb dry spaghetti noodles
2 eggs
1 cup finely shredded or grated parmesan
1 cup ricotta cheese
1 cup shredded mozarella
1 cup marinara sauce
2 tbsp olive oil

Preheat oven to 350. Boil water and cook the spaghetti noodles; drain and rinse noodles.

In a large bowl, mix the hot noodles with 2 tbsp olive oil. In a small bowl, combine the 2 eggs with about 1/3 cup parmesan; add to large bowl with noodles and olive oil. Mix all ingredients so that noodles are coated with egg/cheese mixture.

Form spaghetti noodles into a "crust" in a greased 10" pie plate or round casserole dish. Spread ricotta over the noodles, leaving a small margin around the edges without cheese. Pour marinara sauce over the ricotta.

Bake at 350 for 25 minutes. Remove from oven, and add mozarella to the top. Cook another 5 five minutes, or until mozarella is melted. Remove from oven, and add remainder of parmesan to top. Let sit and cool for about 10 minutes before cutting into "slices".
