"This is the best spaghetti I have ever had" Gary told me just moments ago. I think that says it all. Cook and enjoy!!
8 oz. dried spaghetti
1 tablespoon butter
1 beaten egg
1/4 cup freshley grated parmesan cheese
1 lb pork sausage
1 tablespoon garlic powder (or to taste)
1 quart of tomato sauce (or about that much - i used the second to last jar of sauce that i canned last summer)
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 cup cottage cheese
1 cup mozzarella (and/or garlic mozzarella) cheese
Cook spaghetti according to package directions.
Return cooked spaghetti to warm saucepan. Stir in butter, egg, and parmesan cheese. Stir until butter is melted. Set aside.
Cook ground pork mixed with garlic. Stir in tomato sauce and oregano. Heat through.
Coat a 9 inch pie plate with nonstick cooking spray. Press spaghetti mixture on the bottom and up the sides of the pie plate to form a crust. Spread cottage cheese on the top and up the sides of the pasta crust. Spread meat mixture over that and sprinkle with mozzarella cheese.
Bake in a 350 degree over for 20-25 minutes or until bubbly and heated through. To serve, cut into wedges.
