Another recipe delivered to my e-mail from Allrecipes. I'm going to store it here so I can find it when I want it. I have two springform pans and have only used them once. I'm looking forward to using one with this recipe.

- 1⁄2 cup grated parmesan cheese
- 1⁄2 cup ricotta cheese
- 1 tablespoon italian seasoning
- 4 egg whites
- 1⁄4 cup chopped fresh basil
- 2 tomatoes, chopped (can substitute canned tomatoes)
- 4 slices provolone cheese, cut into fourths (can substitute motzerella)
- Spray a 9 x 3 inch springform pan with cooking spray.
- Cook spaghetti according to package directions.
- Rinse spaghetti with cold water and drain.
- In a large bowl, combine Parm with ricotta cheese, Italian seasoning and egg whites.
- Toss with cooked/rinses spaghetti to coat.
- Press half the spaghetti mixture the pan.
- sprinkle with half the basil.
- top with half the tomatoes
- place half the provolone cheese on top of tomatoes.
- Repeat last 4 steps with remaining half of ingredients.
- Bake in preheated 350 (F) degree oven for 30 minutes.
- Let stand about 15 minutes.
- Remove sides of pan.
- Transfer to a serving platter, cut into wedges to serve.
This is a great idea! I changed a few things, but they all worked out really well. I used whole eggs, cottage cheese and meat sauce instead of egg whites, ricotta, and fresh tomatos. Everything else was the same and it came out perfectly. Thanks for the great recipe :)
This was wonderful! I had to have meat so I made a meat tomato sauce and I had bulk provolone so I diced it, everything else was per directions. So good and so easy. I also so thought it had a nice presentation. I'll be making this a lot in the future instead of plain old spaghetti. Thanks QueenBee, for a keeper!
