Spaghetti pie is a family-approved casserole. Spaghetti pasta is combined with ground beef, parmesan cheese, ricotta cheese, marinara sauce and egg before being baked in the oven. The final product is topped with mozzarella cheese to make this dish extra cheesy. This is a great meal if you already have leftover spaghetti from earlier in the week.
