Let’s Dish! Day 3

Before discovering her family had numerous food allergies, my friend Anika and I used to get together for a day and cook a month’s worth of meals for our freezers.  This is one of the recipes I acquired from her:

Spaghetti Pie
(makes 2 pie plates)

1-8 oz. package cream cheese, softened
1-16 oz. tub sour cream
1 bunch green onions
1 lb. box spaghetti noodles
1 jar spaghetti sauce
1 lb. ground beef, cooked and drained
cheddar cheese


Cook spaghetti.  Meanwhile, mix cream cheese, sour cream and onions in a very large bowl.   Place hot drained spaghetti into bowl with cream cheese mixture and toss until combined.  Place half of spaghetti mixture into two greased pie plates.

Combine meat and spaghetti sauce.  Top the spaghetti in the pie plates with meat sauce.   Do not mix.  Sprinkle with cheddar.

For tonight:  Bake at 400 until bubbly, about 25-30 minutes.

For later:  Cover and place in freezer.  When ready to use, thaw completely and then bake as directed above.

This is terrific with garlic bread and a green salad.
