Super Pasta Pie

SUPER PASTA PIE

This is a great recipe you can make with the kids after school and it will be a recipe they can share and pass onto their kids.

You can use any pasta; it works well with Spaghetti or Ziti. In this recipe I have used ground turkey, but you can use ground beef or ground lean chicken – whatever you prefer.

Ingredients

12 oz. spaghetti (keep ½ cup of cooking water for later)Pasta Pie

1 yellow onion, chopped

½ red capsicums

½ green capsicums

1 lb of ground turkey (or chicken or beef)

1 cup tomato paste

3 large eggs

1 cup of 2% shredded mozzarella

1 cup of 2% grated parmesan cheese

1 tablespoon of dried mixed herbs (3 tablespoons of fresh)

1 teaspoon Chia Seeds

2 tablespoon olive oil

 Preparation

Preheat oven to 350.

In a large skillet, sauté the onions until soft. Add ground turkey or beef, and ¾ cup of the tomato paste. Add half the pasta water and the capsicums and chia seeds stir well.  Consistency should be like a thick Bolognese sauce, add more cooking water as needed.

In a large bowl, mix together the cooked spaghetti, eggs, parmesan cheese, 1 cup of the mozzarella, and ¼ cup of the tomato paste.

Grease a 9 or 10-inch pie pan with olive oil. Spread half the meat mixture over the bottom of the pan. Add the spaghetti mixture and press it down to level it. Top with the remaining meat mixture; scatter the remaining mozzarella on top.

Bake the pie in the oven for 30 to 35 minutes. Remove from the oven and let sit about 10 minutes. Use a sharp knife or pizza slicer to cut into wedges like a pie. Serve with a green salad.
