Mini Spaghetti Pie Casserole

This recipe combines two of my favorite foods – spaghetti and pie!

A match made in heaven to be sure and so quick and easy to make, I’m wondering why I haven’t thought of this before?

I know you are going to love these mini spaghetti pies!  And those picky eaters of yours?  Yep, you got this one!

This is by far the best spaghetti pie casserole you will ever make.

Just sayin.

There are lots of great recipes out there, I really like this one from Canadian Living, just click here.

With just Mark and I at home, making a full tray or baking dish of just one recipe doesn’t always make sense.

Making mini portions allows us to have individual meals that can be popped into the microwave.  Am I right?

So we’re making mini spaghetti pie casseroles and using this awesome new mini pie baking tin I just got.

I think it’s very cool, don’t you?

I had some extra ingredients, so  I doubled the recipe and also baked a 9″ spaghetti pie – to freeze for one of ‘those’ days, when I don’t feel like cooking a big dinner – 🙂

What I like about this recipe is that you actually use whole tomatoes, and season it yourself, not like the jar sauces that are already seasoned for spaghetti.

It has a really FRESH taste, that’s BIG on flavor.  Know what I mean?
