Lightened Up & Loaded Spaghetti Pie {Plus a Giveaway}

by Courtney on August 22, 2012

So tonight’s dinner? Oh lawdy…where do I even begin?

IMG_7323

For the past week (at least) I’ve been waiting for an opportunity to cook up a real dinner, and tonight I finally got my chance. I was browsing around in our fridge to see what we had on hand that I could incorporate with a box of this Barilla PLUS spaghetti.

IMG_7300

I was sent a few boxes of the Barilla PLUS pasta a couple of weeks ago and had been eager to try it out ever since. So after rounding up a few key ingredients, and remembering an idea I had not too long ago, I threw caution to the wind and did a little experimenting.

IMG_7305

Gosh, I love it when experiments turn out even better than you hoped for. Winking smile

This was my first-ever attempt at a “spaghetti pie,” but I can now tell you that this is one of the best things going. Seriously. It almost reminded me of a cheesy pasta dish, slash pizza, slash lasagna all rolled into one…and who doesn’t like that?

IMG_7308

IMG_7314

To balance out the pasta and cheese in this dish, I made sure to add plenty of fresh veggies and some chopped up chicken sausage for added protein. When they came together?

IMG_7316

Well, it was like heaven on a plate.

IMG_7319

I honestly didn’t measure much of anything while I was making this, but here’s a compilation of what I’m pretty sure is about the same.

IMG_7322

So I have great news…not ONLY do you guys get an awesome, lightened up spaghetti pie recipe, but I’ve also got a little giveaway for you all this evening. Smile

IMG_7320

It might be boring, but my favorite pasta is either just with a little butter, or maybe tossed in olive oil with roasted garlic.

My favorite way to eat spaghetti is when my mom makes spaghetti and meat sauce!!! It doesn’t have homemade sauce or freshly made pasta or anything, just a box of pasta, canned sauce, and ground beef……but it’s amazing!!! Reminds me of family dinners growing up when we would all be together at the kitchen table!!

When I was in college and pasta was pretty much all I could afford, I’d get the whole wheat kind (didn’t matter what shape. Not picky), and then carmelize onions in garlicky olive oil and add cheese. It was my go-to dish whenever I had people over and I became known as the pasta queen. Love pasta! :-)

I would have to say just spaghetti mixed with onions, green peppers , mushrooms and some fresh cherry tomatoes in different colors and fresh herbs and parmesan cheese all swirled together…along with some garlic bread.

Its a toss up between classic spagetti with meat sauce (with a bunch of added veggies to the sauce!) and a mix of very fresh, sauteed veggies and penne. YUM!

That looks awesome! I like that kind of pasta, too (actually…it might be in my pantry right now). My favorite thing is baked pasta (cue: Mmmmm). My trick is to use fire-roasted tomatoes in my homemade sauce :)

I have a spaghetti pie type bake that I make. But I use grated sweet potato, spinach and mushrooms as the veggies to bulk it up. So yum.

I love pasta. I don’t like seafood pasta sauces but beyond that I love it all! Especially mac and cheese. Whenever I am in the south it is a must have for me.

I love to roast veggies when they are about to spoil and toss them with some pasta, olive oil, and parmesan. It is a staple in our house since we have a CSA membership and only two mouths to feed!!!

Reply

290 Nancy August 23, 2012 at 12:30 pm

Well, I hate to admit it, but I eat pasta cold! I fix for my family (spaghetti or ziti, ot penne), they eat it hot and then I put it in the fridge and have it for lunch the next day cold! Don’t eat it when it’s hot, weird, I know!

My favorite and easy way to eat pasta is to saute some peppers, mushrooms, and onions with some sliced flavored chicken sausage, cook the pasta and mix a cup of cooked pasta and a cup and a half of the veggie chicken mix in my favorite bowl – yum. BTW, I make a point of buying Barilla because they opened up a huge plant near where I live in western NY and brought some much needed job opportuntities to this community.
