  • 1 handful spaghetti noodles
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbs butter
  • fresh basil
  • Parmesan cheese
  • pepper
  • cottage cheese
  • 1 large can spaghetti sauce


  • Grease your pan (it doesn't have to be a pie tin, it can be a 8x8 pan, or whatever you have around.) And cook your spaghetti as the package dictates.
  • While noodles are cooking, use a fork to scramble an egg in a large bowl. After noodles are cooked, drain them, and add them to your egg. Then add your butter and mix thoroughly. Next, add a handful of basil and a handful of Parmesan cheese (don't worry about being exact, it will taste good no matter what!) Add pepper to taste.
  • Next, spray your pan and dump in your spaghetti mixture. Press noodles down with a fork, trying to compress your mixture.
  • Add a layer of cottage cheese over your pie.
  • Add a layer of spaghetti sauce over the top of your cottage cheese, (I use the Hunt's canned kind, best ever...) If you'd like sprinkle a little Parmesan as a garnish.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes. If you need to shorten the time, just up the temperature. Enjoy!


Store leftovers in the fridge for 5-7 days.
