Spaghetti Pie

This recipe comes from my Aunt, Karen, just simplified a bit. It's really pretty easy and my kids LOVE it (as do my hubby and I)! It's just a fun way to eat spaghetti.
Here's what you'll need:
6 oz. cooked spaghetti
2 T. butter
2 eggs, beaten
1/3 C. Parmesean cheese
1 lb. hamburger, browned
1 (26.5 oz) can spaghetti sauce
16 oz. container cottage cheese
8 oz. pkg. Mozzarella cheese, shredded
Combine eggs & Parmesean cheese. Stir butter with the warm cooked spaghetti until it is melted, then combine with the eggs and Parmesean. Press into a "crust" into 2 greased 9 or 9 1/2 inch pie pans.
Spread each crust with a layer of cottage cheese (half of the container for each pie).
Stir together hamburger and spaghetti sauce then spoon over the cottage cheese layer. Bake in a preheated oven at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Top with Mozzarella cheese and bake for another 5 minutes or until the cheese is melted.

Cut like a pie and serve. Mmmmm...

To use as a freezer meal, assemble the pies in foil pie pans.  Cover tightly with heavy duty foil or freezer foil. Label and freeze.  To serve:  Thaw and bake at 350 degrees and bake for 30 minutes and continue from there.

My kids LOVED this meal, and I like it better than regular spaghetti so it's a good pick!
