Spaghetti Squash Meat Pie

Dec 2, 2010 by

Now, I realize “meat pie” may not be the most appetizing-sounding word for this, but there really isn’t a more accurate term. But who doesn’t love meat or pie, right? So together it’s like a unicorn RIDING a rainbow, AMIRITE?

Anyway. This isn’t nearly as hard as the amount of ingredients might seem to make it, but there is a significant amount of cook time. It’s a good idea to cook the squash earlier so it’s cool enough to handle.

The “crust” of this pie is made with spaghetti squash, ricotta and mozzarella cheese, egg, Parmesan, salt, and garlic powder. I literally mixed all that stuff together and formed it down in my 9-inch pie pan. I baked it on low for almost an hour, letting the egg work on “holding” the crust together. When it was slightly brown, we took it out, and added the already cooked meat sauce, topped with a delicious cheese blend, and popped it back in to brown for another 20-25 minutes. And it came out exactly as I wanted it. See how pretty?

      Is is cold where you are? If it is, it’s because Hell has officially frozen over. How do I know this? My 15-year-old son came to me and spoke words I thought I’d never hear: “Mom, that squash you made the other night was REALLY good. Can we have it again?”

      It was spaghetti squash, just tossed with some parmesan cheese.

      I am SO making this. Oh, yes.

      This was REALLY good. The spaghetti squash wasn’t mushy and the flavors of the filling made it so delicious and satisfying.

      A co-worker made this for our staff potluck. She passed along the link to your recipe. Made it tonight for supper. Tweaked it to make it weight watcher friendly. WoW! This is a very yummy recipe! My 20-yr old son, who hates veggies, but knew I was doing this recipe, said it was very good and I can do it again!!
