Spaghetti Pie

Spaghetti Pie with Olives and  Chouriço
I have always wanted to make a spaghetti pie.
Not only is it a great way to use up your leftover cold spaghetti, but it tastes delicious too.
This is a very versatile recipe, you can add just about anything to it.

Spaghetti pie has many variations, some are pretty much a bolognaise or tomato sauce with spaghetti baked on top. Some are a variation of cottage pie, with a cheesey spaghetti topping, And some are vary similar to the spanish omelette or frittatta.


This recipe is pretty much for a crustless quiche. What better way to use up your leftover spaghetti than throw it together with ingredients that you would generally have readily available. 


Spaghetti Pie
1 tsp olive oil

half an onion, sliced
100g bacon or Chouriço
6 eggs
300ml milk
salt and pepper
200-300g leftover spaghetti (or whatever you have)
additional ingredients: baby tomatoes, sun dried tomatoes, olives, cheeses, spring onions, green beans, broccoli, spinach and herbs etc.

Preheat the oven to 180°C.

Slice the onion and fry in some olive oil with the bacon/Chouriço until cooked, but not too crispy.
In a bowl, beat the eggs and add your choice of additional cooked or raw veg.
Add the bacon/Chouriço, grated cheese and spaghetti.
Season well and pour into a well greased dish.

Cook in the oven for 25-30 minutes until the centre is no longer wobbly and serve either hot or cold.

    1. Lol. Its with pasta! Right? That's why the italian loves it :)
      It was very easy and very fun to make (I didn't boil the spaghetti in salt water, so season well). I'm doing some more fun and unusual posts. I'm pretty enamoured with interesting american recipes. Dying to make a pumkin pie...
