This is an Italian women’s comfort food! I remember when I was a child and had this dish for the first time, I was visiting with my girl friend and we went to her grandmother’s house. I have never eaten Spaghetti Pie before and it didn’t sound like I was going to like it either, my girlfriend promised me I would. Well I did, in fact, I loved it. As I grew up this memory has stayed with me including the sit and spin memory of that day! It has been in my families menu ever since.
I recommend ….Always play with you food, you can add any ingredients you like!
