It's time to bust out of your regular baked pasta routine with Spaghetti Pie--a Midwest one-pot meal that's quick, easy and oh-so-cheesy. Just choose your pasta, grab some cheese, stir up some sauce and throw in ingredients like pepperoni, ground turkey or rotisserie chicken.
These deep-dish casseroles are perfect for serving big groups and are easy to make in advance: boil and chill the pasta earlier in the day, or bake the whole pie a day ahead of time and reheat in the oven. Each of the pies can be baked in any standard 9- to 10-inch deep-dish pie pan or ceramic casserole, or in a deep ovenproof skillet like a cast iron pan. Here are five amazing Spaghetti Pie recipes your friends and family will love.
