Spaghetti Pie

{Meatless Monday}

This is a quick and easy spaghetti variation...just for a little change from the normal spaghetti.

Here's what you need:
12 oz. spaghetti, cooked and drained
4 T butter, melted
2/3 cup parmesan cheese
4 eggs
1/2 cup diced onion
1/4 c. diced green pepper
1 T olive oil
1/2 tsp oregano
1/4 tsp salt
1 1/2 c. grated mozzarella cheese
1 c. cottage cheese or ricotta
2 c. spaghetti sauce

Combine noodles, butter, parmesan, and eggs.  Bake at 350* for 15 minutes in a 9X13 pan.

Meanwhile, saute onion and green pepper with olive oil, oregano, and salt.

Take noodles out of oven and spread 1 c. spaghetti sauce over the top.

Combine 1 c. mozzarella cheese and 1 c. cottage cheese/ricotta and spread over the sauce.

Top with sauteed veggies.  Spread remaining sauce over the veggies and sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup mozzarella. 

Bake 15 minutes more, until bubbly.

 I like to cut this into squares and serve right out of the oven.
