My dh loved this recipe--and he didn't even miss the meat. He thought it was a very good choice for vegi night. However,it took longer for prep than I expected--the prep time was closer to 30 minutes for me, but that included time for cooking the spaghetti and broccoli, shredding the cheese and cutting the veggies.
i absolutely love this recipe! telling kids its a spaghetti pizza and them eating it is so much easier than getting them to eat what it is.. baked spaghetti!
Yum! Yum! I was recommended this recipe by the wife of my husband's boss who said this is the one of the best recipes on Recipezaar! I laughed after I typed in the recipe number and saw Tish's name and knew it had to be a winner :) Although, no one in my immediate family enjoyed this (DH has sworn off spinach since the Ready Set Cook contest that had it for one of the ingredients!!) I loved it and I also gave some to my parents and they loved it too! Thanks for posting this recipe and thanks to L for recommending it!
Total winner here! I did make a few changes. I halved the recipe and was torn as to how much sauce I should use. The can of sauce that I had was 24 oz. I used all 24 ozs rather than only 16 and it worked. I also added oregano and Penzy's Italian sausage seasoning to the crust mixture and would do that again. Lastly, I added thinly sliced mushrooms and onion to the veggie mix and baked it longer than called for. I took it out once it looked like the moisture had been absorbed. DH really liked this and didn't miss the meat one bit. I'm looking forward to making this as a regular rotation in our menu and add even more veggies. Thanks so much for posting this recipe!
I asked my family to give it a star rating and they all said 5. One of my girls is vegetarian and I vowed to prepare one meal a week for her. We loved it! Serves at least 6 healthy portions. I followed the recipe only cooking the crust 5 mins longer (i made to much pasta) otherwise its perfect. Thanks Matt!
Very good and creative. I baked the "crust" longer to assure it was firm. I also added less pasta sauce as well as some spices. It came out a tad watery, but can't think of any way to fix that for the next time. This would work great for any vegetable or your favorite pizza toppings. Next time I'll add red bell pepper and mushrooms. I uploaded a picture too.
I really liked this! I made a very small serving since it was just for me tonight, so I made it in my toaster oven. I used whole wheat angel hair pasta, reduced fat cheese & added a lot of spices into the "crust"-dried onion, oregano, black pepper, pizza seasoning-I love flavorful foods! For one serving, I only used 1/4 cup cheese & found it to be plenty cheesy. I added a little turkey pepperoni with the veggies but I loved the zucchini & broccoli. Mine wasn't as pretty as the picture (darn!) but it was very yummy. Thank u for sharing!
This was just okay. The pasta at the bottom got really starchy and mushy.
This was just OK. Probably just personal preference, but it left me with a craving for the real thing.
