How to Make It

Step 1

Place an 8-inch round cake pan in oven. Preheat oven to 500°F (leave pan in oven as it preheats).

Bring a large saucepan filled with water to a boil over high heat. Add pasta; cook 8 minutes or until almost done; drain. Place eggs in a large bowl. Add hot pasta; toss to coat.

Step 3

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high. Add sausage; cook 2 minutes or until browned, stirring to crumble. Add tomato, onion, and spinach; cook 7 minutes or until liquid has almost evaporated, stirring occasionally. Add sausage mixture to pasta mixture. Stir in pepper, salt, and 2 ounces cheese.

Step 4

Carefully remove cake pan from oven; coat pan with cooking spray. Add pasta mixture to cake pan; sprinkle with remaining 1 ounce cheese. Bake at 500°F for 20 minutes. Remove pan from oven; cut spaghetti pie into 4 wedges.

Nothing spectacular, but definitely good and something different.  I'd probably use sharp cheddar next time as I felt the cheese was a bit bland.  Hot chicken sausage was great!  A little tomato sauce along with the chopped might be nice too.  The whole family ate it without complaint.

Surprisingly good

OK, so I fudged around a little with this.  Hubby blanches at the thought of anything other than "real" Italian sausage.  So used one link of that and some ground turkey with a splash of fennel seed.  He was fooled.  Also added some mushrooms just because.  It was delicious.

Good solid dish

This was easy to make and great as leftovers the next night, too.  I followed the recipe except for using spicy turkey sausage instead of the chicken.  We will definitely have this again.

Good weeknight dish

My husband and I really liked it.  Had to use regular hot Italian sausage, but I rinsed it lightly after cooking it and wiped out the pan.  Definitely will make again and it might be a good one to double and put one in the freezer.

Basically made to recipe subbing turkey sausage except added some reduced-fat cream cheese because we needed to use it up.  Easy to make but nothing special.
