Easy Baked Spaghetti Pie with Sour Cream
I’d never heard of spaghetti pie till I moved to Indiana. This seemed to be a popular dish among families here and is typically made with a crust of spaghetti, a layer of cottage cheese followed by ground beef, spaghetti sauce, and cheese. I clipped this recipe from the paper years ago; this version appealed to me because it was a spaghetti pie with sour cream instead of cottage cheese.
This Italian inspired pie is one of those dishes I whip up when I have some of leftover spaghetti sauce or marinara in the freezer. My favorite part of this Spaghetti Casserole is the very edge of the crust, slightly eggy, with a few crispy noodles.
This Easy Spaghetti Pie is family-friendly and got my family’s seal of approval. It can be tweaked in numerous ways to make it your own.
- I love this version with sour cream instead of cottage cheese, but you can go back and use cottage cheese, ricotta, or even cream cheese instead.
- Use Italian sausage instead of ground beef or throw in some sauteed mushrooms (that would be taboo at my house!).
- I simply season the ground beef with salt. Adding Italian spices would jazz this up even more.
- You can also add some minced onion and garlic while sauteing the beef for additional flavor. I like keeping it simple for an easy weeknight meal.
- If you want to make this spaghetti pie ahead of time, it freezes well.
- Just wrap the unbaked “pie” with foil and/or plastic wrap and freeze. When you’re ready to serve, bake at 325º for 1 1/2 hours or till cooked through and the cheese is melted and bubbly.
How to Make Spaghetti Pie
- Make a crust composed of cooked spaghetti noodles, 2 beaten eggs, and some Parmesan cheese.
- Next, arrange the pasta mixture in a greased pie dish.
- Then, layer sour cream, cooked ground beef, spaghetti sauce, and mozzarella cheese.
- Bake for about 25 minutes and dinner is served!
What’s not to love about this spaghetti pie? This is definitely a family-friendly recipe. It would be easy to double or triple and bake in a 9 x 13 pan for a crowd. My Italian Poutine Pie is a similar recipe with a hash brown instead of pasta crust. Plus, this Skillet Taco Pie is comfort food from my childhood.

Just made this tonight and loved it! Subbed ground turkey for my non-beef eating hubby. It was so easy and I was able to make it in stages in between wrangling my kids. Definitely going on my regular rotation 🙂 Just crossing my fingers my kids will like it too…
I’m SO glad, Amy!!! Thanks, my friend, for your terrific review. xo
Interesting! My husband mentioned spaghetti pie years ago, and he’s from kansas. I thought you would mix the sour cream in with the spaghetti, but I love it on top. And for more decadence, you could always add some ricotta in with the spaghetti? I’m all about decadence!!!
When I first looked at this I thought it was going to be a complicated recipe, but you’ve made it so easy. Thanks. Looks delicious!
Love this recipe. I can easily adapt it when I make spaghetti with meat sauce. I always have spaghetti and sauce left over. What a great way to use up leftovers.
What a delicious and super comforting dinner. I’m sure it would be a hit with my family, too. 🙂 ~Valentina
Wow, what a great recipe Liz…I am loving the idea of using spaghetti as one of the layers of this pie…thanks for sharing it!
Have a great rest of the week!
What a neat dish! I’ve heard of this (maybe from you when you originally posted this!) but haven’t gotten around to making it. Really should try it — it sounds like so much fun. Thanks!
Wow that is a delicious looking slice of spaghetti pie, I need to make your version mine never looked this great! BRAVO!
I’ve never thought of making spaghetti pie. Looks delicious
Talk about a blast from the past 🙂 I haven’t had this in years but it looks delicious! Plus, it seems that anything Italian is always a hit!
This sounds delicious! I bet it would be a hit with so many families! I really like the idea of using sour cream. I have used creme fraiche before for a similar recipe and I know how good it is.
Actually, I’ve never had a spaghetti pie. I only made a spaghetti casserole, but the goal was some kind of semi-dry / a little crispy dish. It was delicious, but of course I love this pasta pie loaded with meat, sauce, and cheese more! This is when a pizza meets pasta, I guess 🙂 Very delicious!
o my lord..that cheese topping has me seriously drool…this is such a great idea for a comforting and delicious meal.
How fun is this!? I love this kind of clever, delicious, comfort food. This needs to happen in my kitchen!
Oh gosh, I remember my Pepe & Sue bought my sister and I our first cookbook and my Mom let us pick out 1 meal a week from it for us to cook together and my first pick was spaghetti pie!
Never made this amazing dish with spaghetti: yum! Here is pretty popular the frittata di Carnevale, a spaghetti – eggs frittata stuffed with cheese, sausage and more… very tasty… baci
I’m baking this for my next dinner party! Comfort food at its best!
hmm… never heard of this till now! definitely interesting and I will be bookmarking this recipe!
