This is my Aunt Linda's recipe, which I always looked forward to when I visited her as a young girl. Now it is a favorite of my husband's and we make it often.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook spaghetti according to package directions; drain and place in a bowl.
  2. Add butter, eggs and Parmesan cheese; mix well. Spread over the bottom and up the sides of a greased 10 in deep dish pie plate to form a crust.

  4. In a skillet, brown beef, onion and pepper; drain. Stir in tomatoes, tomato paste, sugar, oregano and garlic salt.
  5. Spoon over cottage cheese.
  6. Bake, uncovered at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.
  7. Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese; return to the oven for 5 minutes more or until the cheese is melted.
  8. Cut into wedges.

My husband and I really enjoy this pie! We have made it several times, it freezes and reheats well for lunches. Thanks for sharing it!

My aunt makes this as well. I think she only uses the first four ingriedients and lots of black pepper. It tastes great to me not hot.

Very tasty but a bit too dry. Very easy to make and would make again. Thank you for the recipe.
