Cheesy Spaghetti Pie...

Cheesy Spaghetti Pie
"Baked & Tasty"
We were at our Son's house....It's hard to always see the 5 kids, at the same time!
 They are so busy with school, sports, clubs, etc....
So to help out I made a dinner that could be served after sports practice, on the Go or after the big game! ...I'm SO glad I'm Nana!
With 5 kids, going in 5 different directions, every waking moment...Mom & Dad needed a night off from fixing dinner!
SO...Nana to the rescue, (And HAPPY to do it)!
Baked Spaghetti Pie, Corn & Buttered Sourdough Bread
This dinner was tasty! We served dinner cafeteria style and ate in shifts because of the kids coming and going's! 
This dinner handles large crowds and stands up to excessive time frames while keeping it warm or reheating!
The seasoning & style of prep seasons the spaghetti immediately! No waiting for 2nd day seasoning. *(Our family loves Spaghetti on the 2nd day!)
 This is so easy to prep ahead of time and cook later. I would serve this dinner for my kids when they were playing sports!
