Spaghetti Pie

Print Recipe

6 oz spaghetti
2 Tbsp butter
1/3 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
2 eggs, well beaten
1 lb. ground beef or Italian sausage out of the casings
1/2 cup chopped onions
1 clove garlic, minced
1 cup (8 ounces) ricotta cheese
1 cup favorite spaghetti sauce
1 cup mozzarella cheese, divided

Cook spaghetti and drain. In a large bowl mix spaghetti with butter, Parmesan cheese, and eggs. Stir quickly and well. Form spaghetti mixture into a crust in a greased pie plate. In a skillet over med-high heat cook beef or sausage, onions, and garlic until meat is browned and onions translucent. Drain off extra grease and stir in spaghetti sauce. Heat through. Spread ricotta over spaghetti crust and top with 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese. Top with meat mixture and top with remaining mozzarella cheese. Bake in 350° oven for 20 minutes. Serves 6.

**In place of the spaghetti sauce mixed with the cooked meat, onions, and garlic you could use prepared meat sauce.

++This is delicious and it is a little different than Baked Spaghetti from this postover this.

Navajo Tacos

Print Recipe

1 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup milk
1 1/2 - 2 cups more flour

chili (1 or 2 cans)
grated cheese
sour cream
green onions
guacamole (optional)

Mix first four ingredients till smooth. Add enough flour to make a soft dough. Pinch off pieces of dough and roll thin. Cook in oil on both sides. Deep fat fry them, or use low fat method, described below.

--Serves 4 to 6.

++Either use cooking spray or make your own by placing oil in a regular spray bottle. Spray a little bit of oil in the pan and cook the dough till golden brown. Then lift the scone up with a pancake turner, spray a little more oil, and flip it over to cook on the other side. Alternately you could spread a little bit of oil around using a pastry brush. It works every time. I set the heat to medium so they don't burn.

++The thinner you roll the scones the faster they cook.

++Can serve extra scones with butter and honey for a treat.
