Spaghetti Pie

Spaghetti Pie: Savory Sweet and Satisfying

I had never heard of spaghetti pie until I saw a pin for it. Once I read the ingredients I knew I needed to make it, it sounded so good. After I made it and the whole family loved it and wanted me to keep the recipe, I decided it was time to try and figure out where spaghetti pie came from and how it got its name. After a little bit of research (I did not want to spend a ton of time researching, I have to finish this post sooner than later), I discovered that there is no clear cut answer, just a bunch of guesses. So if anyone knows where spaghetti pie came from or how it got its let me know in the comments below.

Spaghetti Pie: Savory Sweet and Satisfying

Spaghetti Pie


  • 16 ounces spaghetti noodles
  • 5 cups spaghetti sauce, divided
  • 1 pound Italian sausage
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 small yellow onion, diced
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 3/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 8 ounces reduced fat cream cheese, softened
  • 3/4 cup light sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 3 green onion, chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup Monterey Jack Cheese


  1. Cook pasta according to package directions and drain. Return to the pot and stir in 2 cups spaghetti sauce.
  2. In a large skillet heat olive oil over medium heat. Add in the diced onion and cooked until it starts to soften.
  3. Remove the casing from the Italian sausage and add to the skillet with the onions. Cook until the sausage is completely cooked and crumbled. Drain any excess fat.
  4. Add in the oregano, red pepper flakes and garlic powder, stirring to mix.
  5. Add in the remaining 3 cups spaghetti sauce and stir to mix.
  6. Simmer for about 10 minutes.
  7. Preheat oven to 350ยบ F and spray a 9x13 baking dish with cooking spray while sauce is simmering.
  8. Transfer pasta with sauce to the prepared baking dish and spread into an even layer.
  9. In a medium bowl combine the cream cheese, sour cream, green onions and 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning.
  10. Drop spoonfuls of the mixture on top of the pasta and then spread into an even layer.
  11. Pour the meat sauce over the cheese layer and top with both shredded cheeses.
  12. Bake for 30 minutes or until heated through and cheeses are melted.

I used my Homemade Spaghetti Sauce to reduce the amount of sodium in this dish.
