Cheesy Spaghetti Pie
Cheesy Spaghetti Pie is comfort food at its finest. It’s basically a baked version of macaroni and cheese only the pasta used in the recipe is spaghetti. Whether it’s macaroni or cooked spaghetti pasta, any dish that’s made with pasta and cheese is alright by me!
This simple recipe is made with shredded Swiss cheese, eggs, evaporated milk, and spices. The same ingredients found in macaroni and cheese but with one exception. Since cooked spaghetti pasta or noodles are used there is a higher ratio of crunchy edges than when using macaroni. Why is this so important you might be wondering…because the outer, crunchy edges are my favorite! You can have the middle, just save the outside for me!!
Since cheesy spaghetti pie is a very rustic style dish, we like to keep it simple and serve spaghetti pie with sliced tomatoes. Preferably with fresh, garden tomatoes. If that isn’t possible a simple cucumber salad would be great also. Cool Cucumber Radish Salad would be the perfect accompaniment to cheesy spaghetti pie. Have an excessive amount of garden fresh tomatoes? Serve sliced with spaghetti pie.
