Isn’t it nice when your mom brings you over dinner, spaghetti pie to be exact, for no reason?
I think she maybe just wanted her food to be on my blog.
Just kidding : )
But really, it was nice.
The weekend was spent catching up, and it felt so nice to wake up Monday morning to a clean house.
Anyways, back to the spaghetti pie…
One of my favorites that I haven’t had since I became a vegetarian. My mom substituted mushrooms for ground beef. Ian and I practically ate the whole pie by ourselves.
Cooked whole wheat spaghetti, 2 tbsp butter, ~1/3 cup of parm, and 2 beaten eggs makes the crust. Then 1 cup light cottage cheese, ~ 1 jar of spaghetti sauce, and slightly cooked fresh mushrooms make the pie. Baked at 350 for 20 minutes, sprinkle ~ 1/2 cup cheese on top and bake for another 5 minutes. I think it would also be good with some black olives…and maybe some fresh basil? But it was yum yumm as is.
My mom even brought us a salad!
Strawberries and walnuts, with balsamic dressing.
Enjoyed with a glass of wine, and House Hunters International!
Now somebody tell me why I am more comfortable seeing an ICU patient than a 3-year-old articulation kid?
