Spaghetti DeepDish 4 College Cooking

Finding new ways to have traditional meals is always fun and great for putting a twist into dinner.

I have seen this concept of a "spaghetti pie" on multiple occasions, but when I realized how darn easy it was to make (and super delicious) seemed perfect for college cooking!! Let's go!

Spaghetti DeepDish

12" Springform (or plain old pyrex rectangle)
Large mixing bowl
Large skillet

1 lb ground hamburger or sirloin
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 lb spaghetti, cooked al dente and drained
1 medium yellow onion, diced
1/2 cup ricotta
1 cup mozzarella, divided half
1/2 cup parmesan, grated
1/2-1 tsp red pepper flakes
1 tsp salt
Fresh ground pepper
1-2 Tbls freshly chopped parsley (optional)

1. Wash your hands.
2. Preheat oven to 350F degrees and spray your pan with non-stick PAM.
3. Saute onions until translucent.

4. Add meat, garlic, 1 tsp salt, and ground pepper. Brown meat. Set aside.

5. Boil and drain pasta. Drizzle with oil. Set aside.

6. In a large mixing bowl, add marinara, ricotta, 50% mozzarella, parmesan, pepper flakes, salt, and pepper.

7. Add pasta and cooled meat mixture.

8. Stir well and pour into the prepared form.

9. Sprinkle remaining mozzarella and a little extra parmesan.

10. Bake at 350F degrees x 25-30 minutes until top is golden brown.

Always try to invite a few friends for this dish. Prep some extra marinara sauce and parmesan for sprinkling! Add awesome Garlic Bread or a simple salad.
