Moms Spaghetti Pie

I remember eating this as a kid and loving it! Now the hubby loves it too, nad requests it quite often. I did change recipe up a little bit to make it healthier, sorry mom. I will give you both versions.
6 oz thin spaghetti (whole wheat spaghetti)
2 T butter
1/3 cup parmesan cheese
2 eggs, slightly beaten
1 lb hamburger (1/2 lb ground turkey)
1 jar spaghetti sauce
1 cup cottage cheese
3/4 cup shredded cheddar
pepperoni slices (turkey pepperoni)
  1. Cook pasta until tender and drain.
  2. Add butter, parmesan, and eggs to drained pasta in a large bowl.
  3. Spread pasta in pie plate to form crust.
  4. Spread cottage cheese over unbaked spaghetti crust.
  5. Brown hamburger and add sauce. Spread over cottage cheese.
  6. Sprinkle pie with cheese.
  7. Lay pepperoni over cheese
  8. Bake at 350 for 30-35min.

The verdict: Perfect comfort food!
