Spaghetti Pie

This is one my wife made and it was pretty good we both thought it was a good quick meal and of course would be better with our homemade spaghetti sauce but a jar will do in a pinch.

4 oz spaghetti
1 Tablespoon butter
1 beaten egg
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 cup cottage cheese
8 oz ground beef
1/2 cup onion
1/2 cup bell pepper
1 clove garlic minced
1/2 bottle spaghetti sauce
can add crushed red pepper and Italian seasonings
1/2 cup mozzarella cheese
Heat oven to 350.
Cook pasta according to directions, drain and return to saucepan and add butter stir in egg and Parmesan cheese. Spray Pam into 9 inch pie plate. Press spaghetti into bottom and sides forming a crust. Spread cottage cheese over spaghetti on bottom and up sides.
While spaghetti is cooking saute onion,bell pepper,garlic with ground beef till cooked. Drain off fat. Stir in spaghetti sauce and adjust to taste. Cook for about 5 to 6 minutes. Place over cottage cheese and sprinkle mozzarella cheese over sauce.
Bake uncovered for 20 to 25 minutes or till bubbly, cut into wedges and serve.

funny you should say that as we have several dishes we have never made and a lasagna is one.
