Excellent! Thanks for sharing! I had a hard time figuring out how much 1.5 cups of pasta is so I tried 250 grams and it seemed like too much so I added an extra egg. It came out great but I think I'll try less pasta next time. Also will try more spinach (I added butter and pepper to this after cooking) and possibly some pre-cooked chicken. Thanks again!
Awesome pasta dish, Caroline! That little bit of alfredo sauce sends this combo over the top. Picky 8 year old loved the parmesan pasta crust. Easy to put together and an attractive finished product. Thanks for posting!
Great dish. Thanks!! My first spaghetti pie, just had to try it.
