Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
6 ounces packaged dried Whole Wheat spaghetti
2 tablespoons margarine or butter
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 well-beaten eggs
1 pound lean ground beef or bulk pork sausage
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup chopped green sweet pepper
1 can tomatoes Diced -- (7 1/2 oz.) (1 cup)
1 can tomato paste -- (1 oz.) (1 to 6)
1 teaspoon sugar substitute
1 teaspoon dried oregano -- crushed
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
1 cup cream-style Non-Fat Cottage Cheese
1/2 cup shredded low Fat mozzarella cheese (2 ounces)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Cook the spaghetti according to package directions; drain (you should have about 3-1/4 cups cooked spaghetti). Stir margarine or butter into hot spaghetti. Stir in Parmesan cheese and eggs. Form spaghetti mixture into a "crust" in a oiled 10-inch pie plate. Bake in center of oven for 10 min or until crust just begins to set.
Remove from oven and set aside.

In a large skillet cook the ground beef or pork sausage, onion, and sweet pepper until meat is brown and vegetables are tender. Drain well. Stir in the undrained tomatoes, tomato paste, sugar, oregano, and garlic salt. Heat through.

Spread cottage cheese over spaghetti mixture in pie plate. Top with the meat mixture. Bake, uncovered, in a 350 degree F. oven for 20 minutes. Sprinkle the mozzarella cheese over the top. Bake about 5 minutes more or until mozzarella cheese melts.

"The novel spaghetti crust caused this main dish to become a "rage" recipe of the '70s."
I used to do something similar to that ob a jelly roll pan (cookie sheet) called Spaghetti Squares. It's a great change from the norm.
