This is by far the best spaghetti pie casserole you will ever make.

Just sayin.

A delicious spaghetti ‘pie crust’ topped with a yummy meat sauce, and lots of Parmesan, ricotta and mozzarella cheese.  It doesn’t get much easier.

There are lots of great recipes out there, I really like this one from Canadian Living, just click here.

With just Mark and I at home, making a full tray or baking dish of just one recipe doesn’t always make sense.

Making mini portions allows us to have individual meals that can be popped into the microwave.  Am I right?

So we’re making mini spaghetti pie casseroles and using this awesome new mini pie baking tin I just got.

I think it’s very cool, don’t you?

I had some extra ingredients, so  I doubled the recipe and also baked a 9″ spaghetti pie – to freeze for one of ‘those’ days, when I don’t feel like cooking a big dinner – 🙂

What I like about this recipe is that you actually use whole tomatoes, and season it yourself, not like the jar sauces that are already seasoned for spaghetti.

It has a really FRESH taste, that’s BIG on flavor.  Know what I mean?
