This is my Mom's recipe. Excellent and easy to make! Very kid friendly as well!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large bowl, toss hot spaghetti with olive oil.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the eggs and 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese; stir into the spaghetti.
  3. Pour spaghetti mixture into a lightly greased 10" pie plate and form into a "crust".
  4. Spread Ricotta cheese evenly over the crust, but not quite to the edge, and top with sauce.
  5. Bake uncovered for 25 minutes at 350 degrees. Top with mozzarella cheese and bake for 5 more minutes until cheese melts.
  6. Remove from oven and sprinkle with 2 tablespoons parmesan cheese.
  7. Cool for 10 minutes before cutting into wedges.

Holy Macaroni! This is delicious. So easy to make, and such a nice change from the same old pasta. Thanks for sharing!

Easy weeknight meal. Nothing fancy, but good. I ued cottage cheese instead of ricotta (we aren't fans of ricotta) and it worked fine. Next time, I will add some garlic and some salt. Thanks.

We loved this! And it has the added bonus of being extremely versatile - it can be as basic or frou-frou as you like, depending on the variations you decide to go with. The only change I made last night was adding a layer of sauteed mushrooms on top of the sauce. We'll definitely make this again.
