Vegetarian Spaghetti Pie

If someone asked me my family's top 10 recipes without a doubt Spaghetti Pie would be one of them. First of all, anything with the word “pie” in the title is an easy sell with kids and adults. Now add the word spaghetti and you’ve got an exacta!

Several people using Weelicious Menus wanted to know if I could make a vegetarian version of this Weelicious classic, so I create Vegetarian Spaghetti Pie. It’s filled with tiny pieces of vegetables, a zippy red sauce, eggs, parmesan and ricotta cheese for protein and spaghetti as the carbohydrate making it a dish with everything you need all rolled into one!

The best part is that the Vegetarian Spaghetti Pie can be made a day ahead if needed and baked 30 minutes before you’re ready to eat. Cut right into it for a big slice of a recipe that will hopefully become one of your family's top 10 favorites too!

    I am in the process of making this AGAIN--I've always made it w/out meat as my husband is a vegetarian--but my picky-eater 7 yr old loves this dish as well, even requests it. I always add my own organic carrot puree to the sauce to boost more veggie power for my son, who would never eat a vegetable in his life were it up to him. Absolutely a favorite here. Thank you!

    I really want to make this recipe but my son is allergic to eggs. Should I just omit the eggs, or use flax eggs instead? If you could recommend an alternative, I'd greatly appreciate it!

    I just popped mine in the oven. Thought it was important to point out MY prep time was more like an hour! I recognize you listed items already half-prepped: veggies diced, spaghetti cooked, etc. However, I think it's only fair to include full prep time in your listing. Maybe it's my fault for trying this out on a school night:) . Hope it comes out well at least!

    Made this tonight. Had my four-year old help hoping she would like it. No dice...\"too much sauce\". But, my two year old was a fan and my husband and I thought it was REALLY good. Still searching for something we can ALL eat and not end up making three separate dinners. But, I will def make this again...for me!
