Love Comfort Food in the Winter??...Skillet Spaghetti Pie

This recipe is cooked in an iron skillet which goes from stove-top to oven. Sure does save on dish washing and proves that one pan meals can be delicious. I found this recipe on a website called Forkful of Comfort. I am always on the lookout for very easy and inexpensive meals to warm the tummy on a cold day. We are all about comfort food in Canada in the winter.

Skillet Spaghetti Pie


  • 1/2 medium onion, diced
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 19 oz. italian sausage, casings removed
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 28 oz. crushed tomatoes
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons italian seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper
  • 1 teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • 2 cups water
  • 12 oz. spaghetti, broken in half
  • 1/4 cup whipping cream
  • 1/3 cup parmesan cheese
  • 2 cups mozzarella cheese

Cooking Directions
  1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large cast iron skillet saute onions in olive oil, on medium heat for 5 mins. Add sausage and brown over medium high heat. When almost brown add in garlic, italian seasoning, red pepper. When browned stir in tomatoes, water and salt. Add in broken spaghetti, submerge under liquid and cover for 8 mins.
  2. After 8 mins stir pasta so noodles don't stick. Reduce heat to medium low and simmer for 6 mins, until pasta is al dente (almost cooked, but still firm). Add in Parmesan cheese and cream, stir well. Sprinkle top with mozzarella cheese. Put in oven for about 15 mins or until spotted brown. (You can also use 9 x 11 baking dish too)
