Many, many years ago I had an Italian boyfriend. His mom came straight from Italy. I loved that boys moms cooking.

One day I had something she called spaghetti pie. I've looked online and found some recipes but they all call for peppers or onions, or pasta sauce and if I remember correctly, the one I ate looked just like spaghetti but baked in a pie dish. I don't remember it having any color to it all. I'm pretty sure it was all just cheeses.

Any ideas on what I ate? I'd love to make it.

Probably a mixture of cheeses (as you noted) and an egg whip to hold the whole thing together. Kind of like a spaghetti quiche?

This is one I used to make when our kids were little. It was a recipe from a magazine; its author stated that she was constantly asked to bring this dish.

Baked Spaghetti Pie

1/2 lb spaghetti
2 large eggs
1 15 oz container ricotta cheese
3/4 C plus 2 T grated Romano or Parmesan cheese
1 C marinara sauce
1/2 C shredded mozzarella cheese

Cook spaghetti according to packgage directions; drain.

Preheat oven to 350. Grease a 9-inch glass pie plate. In large bowl, beat eggs, stir in ricotta and 3/4 C Romano until blended.

Add spaghetti to ricotta mixture and stir until well coated. Transfer spaghetti mixture to pie plate; top w/ marinara sauce. Sprinkle w/ mozzarella and remaining 2 T Parmesan.

Bake 25 minutes. Remove from oven and let stand 10 min for easier serving. Cut into wedges to serve.

This is probably not what you're looking for, but it's a recipe I've saved to make someday:

I think that might have been it.. I'll save this recipe and test it out.

It's not the recipe I was looking for it sounds good and it looks easy. I think my family would enjoy this. The older I get, the more I hate cooking.

I just want you to know I unintentionally started a family war over this dish. I recently went to a party where there were a lot of Italian women and I asked one of them if she had a recipe for spaghetti pie... so she told me how she makes it and how to bake it in the oven. Another woman overheard her and told her she made it wrong and it had to be fried, and then the other woman got involved because she makes it entirely different..

I was sorry I even asked.
