  1. What Temprature? We made this tonight and got it all ready and couldn’t find a temprature to cook at. So we went with good old 350 degrees.

  2. My grandmother made it a little bit differently and It’s my go to recipe all the time.
    She would butter the bottom of the pie plate, then put cottage cheese on the bottom of it in a thin, even layer(which sounds strange, but it helps keep the spaghetti moist and prevents it from burning). Then the cooked spaghetti, is tossed with 2 eggs, butter and parm. cheese. Then, it is pressed into 2 pie plates, forming a hole in the middle of the spaghetti(pressing the spaghetti outward-like a nest-leaving a indentation or hole in the middle if it- The meat mixture is then spooned in the indentation or hole of the spaghetti. Bake (uncovered) for 30 minutes or till heated thru. Top with shredded mozzarella, and bake(uncovered) till cheese is melted and bubbly.
    I have also put zucchini chunks in the meat mixture , sometimes I use ground sausage or ground turkey instead of the beef. This recipe makes 2 pies
