Spaghetti Pie

I make this recipe in 2 pie plates or 2 square casserole dishes, and then freeze or give one away.  It could also be made in one rectangular pan, or a very large pie plate. 

Cook a box of spaghetti and drain. Add 2 T of olive oil and let cool.  After it has cooled, add 2 eggs and 1/4 cup of grated cheese.  This is the "crust" of the pie.   Add to pie plate or plates. 

Mix 15 oz of ricotta cheese, 1/4 cup of grated cheese, 1 cup of shredded cheese, and 1/2 teaspoon of italian seasoning.  Put this on top of the pasta layer.

Cook 1 lb of ground turkey with 2 cloves of garlic, salt and, pepper.  I usually add diced onion but you could use about 1/2 t. of onion powder instead.  To the meat, add 1 cup of veggie juice and 1 1/2 cups of spaghetti sauce.  I use the veggie juice to make it a little healthier.  If you don't want to use the veggie juice, use 2 cups of spaghetti sauce instead.  Spread on top of the cheese mixture.

Top each pie with about 1/2 cup of shredded cheese. 

When you're ready to eat it, bake at 350 deg for 30 mins.  (Doesn't need to be baked before freezing because everything is already cooked).
