Spaghetti Turkey Pie Recipe

Spaghetti Turkey Pie Recipe


1 pound ground turkey breast

1 cup chopped green pepper

1/2 cup chopped onion

1/2 cup tomato sauce

1/2 teaspoon dried basil

1/2 teaspoon fennel seed, crushed

1/8 teaspoon pepper

6 ounces spaghetti

1/4 cup egg substitute

1 tablespoon reduced-fat stick margarine, melted

1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese

1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes

1/2 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese, divided

How to make it

In a large skillet, cook the turkey, green pepper and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Stir in the tomato sauce, basil, fennel seed and pepper. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 20-30 minutes.

Meanwhile, cook the spaghetti according to package directions; drain. In a bowl, combine the spaghetti, egg substitute, margarine, Parmesan cheese and parsley flakes. Form a crust in a 9-in. pie plate coated with cooking spray.

Stir 1/4 cup mozzarella cheese into the turkey mixture; spoon into spaghetti crust. Cover and bake at 350° for 30 minutes. Uncover and sprinkle with remaining mozzarella cheese. Bake 15 minutes longer or until cheese is melted. Let stand for 10 minutes before cutting into wedges.
Yield: 6 servings.
