Cheesy Spaghetti Pie

I was trying to figure out something new to make with pasta. There is the traditional mac n cheese, or baked ziti, lasagna, penne vodka... But, I could not think of anything when it came to spaghetti....until I thought of spaghetti pie!

Mix the cooled spaghetti, grated cheeses and eggs together in a large bowl. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, and paprika. 

Add the oil to a large nonstick sauté pan or round baking dish and place in oven to heat up. 

Once hot (around 5 minutes), add a handful of the spaghetti mixture to the pan and flatten it out to the edges. Lay the cheese on top and add another layer of the spaghetti mixture. Top with more cheese.

Turn out onto a cutting board, slice as you would a pizza and serve.

Enjoy!
