Spaghetti Square Pie

About a week ago, my youngest son and I are visiting the local drug/craft store.  He asks me if I will purchase this:

Elliot's Request

At first, I said 'no'...because it cost $19 dollars.  But then, I came to my senses...remembering WHO I was, WHAT blog I wrote, and WHAT my responsibility is to my readers.

So, yes, I splurged.  Because, honestly, when your SON asks for a COOKBOOK...what else do you do?

Tonight's dinner?  Page 38 - known as Spaghetti Pie.

An interesting twist on your typical spaghetti and meat sauce, the before-baking product looks somewhat like this:

The meat/bread crumb mixture forms the pie's "shell", while the cooked spag/egg mixture makes the "filling".  Spaghetti sauce and mozzarella top the concoction!

Here, later on tonight, I'll post the final judgment.

Later on:  the consensus regarding the above dinner was very positive.  Seasoned breadcrumbs gave the shell a different savor.  In many ways, though, it tasted much like standard ol' Spaghetti and Meat Sauce.  However, the presentation was fun - the longer the dish sits, the easier it sits up like a piece of cake.  All in all, thumbs up from everyone at the table.
