spaghetti pie

From my friend, Nancy Wilson

12oz. spaghetti
1/2 c Butter
1 c Parmesan cheese
3 eggs [well beaten]
4 T rubbed rosemary

2 1/2 lb ground beef
1 c diced onion
2 15oz. tomato sauce
2 6oz. tomato paste
2 t sugar
1/3 c water
oregano or basil to taste
2 c sour cream
8 oz. Mozzarella cheese

Cook spaghetti aldente, drain.
Add butter, Parmesan, eggs and rosemary; chop with knife.
Form the mixture as a crust in two 10 inch pie plates. Let cool.
saute onions and meat, add tom sauce, paste, sugar, water, and seasonings.
Cook together 2 minutes.
Add sour cream on top of crust. Fill with tom/meat sauce.
Thinly slice mozzarella and add as top layer.
Bake 350 - thirty minutes.

Variation: a layer of fresh spinach after the sour cream is great!
