Spiralized Potato Spaghetti Pie

I’ve seen “spaghetti pie” on the web a lot. I never really understood it, because at least in my family, there were never leftovers. And a spaghetti pie, as the name suggests, is a pie made of leftover spaghetti.

We always cleared the table of every last noodle, crumb, and sip of wine.

I was actually supposed to spend time with my family at my grandparents’ home this Sunday, but as you know, if you read yesterday’s blog post, I was sick. Correction: I am sick.

I actually don’t even want to sit at my desk, because I’m afraid of contaminating my new favorite space with germs. So, if anyone has any good ways to get rid of germs, aside from a good Lysol wipe, let me know.

But, yes, there were never any pasta leftovers in our household. I remember my mother used to make a pound of rigatoni for my dad and her and they’d eat it all. All of it. A full pound!

Since I’m forever curious, I decided to experiment and finally make a spiralized spaghetti pie, using potatoes I got from the farmer’s market. I topped it with an herbed ground turkey and marinara sauce, sprinkled some mozzarella cheese, and patiently waited as it baked in the oven.

And now, I get it! I finally understand the spaghetti pie. It’s amazing! I ate leftovers for a couple of days, and I served it differently each time. Since there aren’t any greens in this dish, and I’m a greens freak, I served it up with some sauteed brussels sprouts, but do you and use whatever veggies you have in your fridge or are craving: roasted broccoli would do well here, or even just a good old fashioned salad.

You may be thinking, “But Ali, the carbs!” Honestly, when I ate it for dinner alongside the greens, it felt like a complete meal – a starch, a protein, a fat, and a vegetable. You are only eating about a half of a potato per serving, but it seems like more, thanks to the spiralizing process!

Carbs or not, happy Monday, I hope this spiralized spaghetti pie makes your table this week!

Spiralized Potato Spaghetti Pie

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 large Russet potatoes peeled, Blade D
  • salt and pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 3 medium eggs beaten
  • 1 large carrot peeled and diced
  • 1/2 cup chopped red onion
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 pound ground turkey lean
  • 1.25 cup marinara sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon basil
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • chopped parsley to garnish

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  • Heat 1 tablespoon of the olive oil in a large skillet. Once oil is shimmering, add the potato noodles and season with salt, pepper and garlic powder. Toss until mostly cooked and lightly browned, about 10 minutes and then transfer to a medium mixing bowl. Let cool for 1 minute and then add in the egg and toss well to combine.
  • Spread the noodles out to cover the bottom of an oven-safe casserole dish. Transfer the casserole dish to the oven and bake for 15 minutes or until the egg is cooked and the noodles are set and appear firm when pressed down with the back of a spatula. Ideally, the crust should start to brown and perhaps some of the edges are crispy.
  • As the crust cooks, heat the remaining oil in the same skillet over medium-high heat. Once oil is shimmering, add the carrots, onions, garlic, red pepper flakes, and let cook for 5 minutes until onions are translucent. Push the vegetables to one side and add the turkey meat, crumbling and cooking until no longer pink, about 7 minutes. Add the marinara sauce, oregano and basil, season with salt and pepper, and cook until mixture thickens, 5-7 minutes.
  • Once spiralized potato bottom is set, remove the dish from the oven and pour over the meat mixture, spreading evenly across the potato bottom. Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese evenly and put back in the oven, baking for 5-10 minutes or until cheese melts.
  • Remove casserole from oven, garnish with parsley, and serve.

Ali, I hope you get to feeling 100% soon. A germ-ridding trick: cut open a large onion and place the open halves on a small plate in the area you are wanting to clear. The onion will absorb the germs in the room & you will see the onion surfaces blacken.

Thank you so much!

Having trouble spiralizing sweet potatoes. Zucchini works great. What is your trick? PJ
Hello Ali, Thank you so much for your website. I discovered it and signed up for your emails several months ago and I am so happy. I have been telling all my friends. I have tried many of your recipies and Hubby and I both love them. I am home, slightly ill today from my regular wanderings and reading email with this recipe. I PLAN TO MAKE THIS RECIPE TODAY. Mistakenly I and my husband brought potatoes and then a friend gave us some also, so we are overflowing. I made spiralized fries one evening and we loved them. So light, and tasty, there is no desire to over eat as with regular fries. Another plus is there are more nooks and crannies for salt free seasonings to reach than with regular fries! I love your Website, your Blog and I love you for your CARING OF THE HEALTH OF OTHERS. Thanks so much, Belinda

What a kind comment, thank you very much! I'm happy you'll try this recipe!
Amy says:
I love the recipe and can't wait to try it. One question about the eggs. I have a strong smell and taste aversion to egg yolks. Can I make this but use just the whites?
Ali Maffucci says:
I haven't tried it, but give it a try, it shouldn't be a problem!
Lol, our family was/is like yours, we didn't have any leftovers ;-) But this Potato Spaghetti Pie looks fantastic, such a perfect comfort food for these cold and gray fall days. And love how it can be eaten throughout the week. I'll just try a vegetarian version with lentils instead of the meat. Get well soon!!
Ali Maffucci says:
Yes, that's a great idea!

I will try this with zucchini instead of the potatoes!
Dyanne says:
I can't wait to make this! What size dish did you use to make this?
Doc John says:
Thanks for tomorrow nights meal. I'm going to use a mixture of 1-hickory smoked sweet potato and 2-hickory smoked Russet potatoes along wth a pound of my special loose Berliner Turkey Sausage. Hope you feel better. Try adding a few drops of Tea Tree Oil and Eucalyptus Oil to an aroma vaporizer. The Tea Tree Oil has antibacterial properties and the Eucalyptus has a clearing effect on the sinuses and respiratory tract. Works well down here in SC., especially this time of the year.
Ali Maffucci says:
Sounds like a great combo - enjoy! And thanks for the health tips :)
Noelene says:
Today's planned meal on our menu planner was 'New', so when this popped into my inbox, it was meant to be. It's in the oven as I type. I know it will be yummy. Thanks Ali. PS. Get well soon.
Jill says:
I saw you make this on snapchat and couldn't wait to try the recipe! It was a real crowd pleaser - thanks so much!
Jennifer says:
This looks delicious! I just bought some turnips. Could I sub those for the potatoes? Would I need to change the cooking times? And would the flavors work?
Connie OShea says:
I made the potato Spaghetti Pie last night. As my husband almost ate the entire pie, he told me to save the recipe, this one is a keeper.
KathyM says:
I made this last night - delicious! But my potatoes collapsed into a solid mass at the bottom of the pan after cooking and no longer resembled anything like noodles. Still wonderful - but I'm wondering if my original pan was too small when I first cooked the potatoes, or I cooked too long, or...? They were very sticky and not at all brown until nearly 15 min. Thoughts?
Neil says:
Ali: I see the WW points for this but no other nutritional information. Is that available? Also, the recipe says "serves 1," but I'm thinking that the potatoes and a pound of ground turkey probably serves more that one. What is the suggested number of servings for the nutritional information? Thanks.
Deana says:
I'm wondering the same thing.

ramen is the perfect meal for this season of life. it’s cozy, comforting, filling, and satisfying. 🙏🏼 needless to say, I’ve been eating tons of ramen bowls lately, and I’m extra excited to share this one with you, a take on Japanese miso ramen: Miso Noodles with Smoky Tempeh (using @lightlifefoods Original Tempeh) and Kale. 🥬 🍜 #LightlifePartner⁣

this is kind of like two recipes in one, because this smoky tempeh is good on everything – in sandwiches, on salads, in grain bowls - it’s my go-to flavor when I’m making tempeh (especially for those who aren’t as far along on the tempeh train as I am.) the other recipe is the simplest miso ramen with kale, which you’ll be making over and over again. 👏🏼 also, you can simply sub in @lightlifefoods’ Smoky Tempeh product here, to save time!⁣

you can find @lightlifefoods Original Tempeh at @acmemarkets or @wholefoodsmarket, but use their Store Locator on their site to find out where it’s sold near you. 🛒⁣

recipe below 👇🏼👇🏼⁣

Miso Ramen with Smoky Tempeh and Kale⁣
Serves: 4⁣

Ingredients⁣
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil⁣
8-ounce package @lightlifefoods Original Tempeh, cubed⁣
¼ cup soy sauce, low sodium⁣
2 tablespoons maple syrup⁣
¼ teaspoon smoked paprika⁣
1 teaspoon liquid smoke⁣
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder⁣
2 garlic cloves, minced⁣
1-inch knob ginger, minced⁣
4 cups vegetable broth⁣
1 tablespoon miso paste⁣
1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce⁣
4 cups finely chopped kale⁣
12 ounces ramen noodles⁣

Directions⁣
Heat half the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the tempeh slices and cook for 5 minutes until browned, stirring frequently.⁣

While tempeh cooks, stir together ¼ cup of water, soy sauce, maple syrup, smoked paprika, liquid smoke, and garlic powder. Pour that over the cooked tempeh and stir to coat. Let cook another 5 minutes or until moisture is evaporated and tempeh is browned. Set aside on a parchment lined plate.⁣

Heat the remaining oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Once oil is shimmering, add the garlic and ginger and cook for 1 minute or until fragrant. Add the broth and 2 cups of water and bring to a boil over high heat.

taco mondays are the new taco tuesdays! 🌮 but seriously... every day is a good day for a taco, right? 🥑⁣

the whole family loved these tonight, so I figured I'd share the recipe with you all! for so long, I over-thought fish tacos and now, I've got them down to a pretty easy science: slaw in an avocado sauce, a garnish, and pan seared cod. oh, and some quality corn tortillas, warmed in a skillet first (it makes such a difference!) 👇🏼⁣

cod fish tacos⁣
makes 9 tacos (3 servings) ⁣

ingredients ⁣
~ 1 ripe avocado⁣
~ 1 lime, juiced⁣
~ 1 small garlic clove, sliced⁣
~ 1 large handful cilantro⁣
~ salt and pepper⁣
~ 4 cups coleslaw mix ⁣
~ 9 corn tortillas ⁣
~ avocado oil ⁣
~ 3 boneless, skinless cod filets (about 3-ounces each) ⁣
~ 2/3 cup pineapple mango salsa (or similar) ⁣

directions⁣
in a food processor, place the avocado, lime, garlic, cilantro, 1/4 cup water, and season with salt and pepper and process until smooth. place the coleslaw in a large bowl and add the avocado crema and toss to coat. set aside.⁣

warm the tortillas in a large skillet and set aside, 3 on a plate. ⁣

add the oil to the skillet and once oil is hot, add the cod. cook for 5 minutes, flip, and cook another 5 minutes or until the cod flakes and is opaque. using a spatula, break the cod up into pieces. divide the cod onto the warmed tortillas. top with avocado slaw and mango salsa. serve.⁣
