Spaghetti Pie III
Think of this recipe as a culinary canvas…it’s a good starting point, but you may want to change things up a bit. I’ve made it before, and followed the directions and ingredients precisely. It tastes great, but it’s WAY unhealthy. If you don’t want your family’s hearts exploding…try these suggestions:
- Go ahead and cut the cream cheese down to ¼ a block. It still gives the overall dish a creamy texture. Also, cut all the other cheese amounts in half.
- Ditch the sour cream.
- Substitute ground turkey for the beef
- Chop up a cup of fresh spinach and throw into pasta when boiling.
- Finally, roast one eggplant (415 degrees for 45 minutes). Remove eggplant skin, give the insides a good chop and mix in with the pasta. It’s very healthy and the kids will never know it’s there.
