Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version
Ingredient List: 

1/2 pound lean ground turkey, beef or pork
1 medium clove garlic, peeled and minced
6 ounces uncooked spaghetti
1/2 cup fat-free milk
1 egg, beaten
2 cups spaghetti sauce
1 cup shredded, part-skim mozzarella

*This recipe can be prepared ahead and frozen, then baked when needed.*
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Spray a 12-inch pizza pan or 9 x 13-inch pan with cooking spray. Do not choose a pizza pan with holes designed for a crisp crust.
In a small skillet, brown meat with minced garlic; drain. Break spaghetti into 3-inch pieces. Cook according to package directions; drain thoroughly.
In large bowl, combine milk and egg. Stir in thoroughly drained spaghetti. Pour into prepared pan. Top with meat, sauce, cheese, and ¼ cup each of your choice of toppings: drained sliced mushrooms; drained sliced ripe olives; finely chopped green pepper. If using zucchini slices, carrots, broccoli, or fresh mushrooms, sauté or cook in microwave until crisp-tender and drain off any liquid. Add ½ ounce sliced pepperoni for added variety.
Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until spaghetti crust is firm and cheese melts. Serve immediately.
Note: This recipe can be easily doubled. Bake in a greased 15½-inch x 10½-inch x 1-inch jelly roll pan for 30 minutes.
