Aunt Jeannie's Spaghetti Pie Recipe

Over the years our family has grown but also we have suffered a number of losses.  It is really sad at times to look around the holiday dinner table and miss those special people we have had to say goodbye too but the memories stand strong.  One way that my memories of family members is triggered is through food, anyone in my family will laugh when they read that.  We have always joked with the "skinny" people in our family that they just don't belong (of course we know that is not true) but the truth is, food and meals has always been a big part of our family gatherings and memories.  

So much so, that when I was engaged to Jeremy and my best friend, who has known me since I was 3, even tied in food to my bridal shower.  She had every guest write down their favorite family recipe and made a cook book out of those recipes.  It is truly a special book that is still in my kitchen and I use those recipes often.  One of those recipes is my Aunt Jeannie's Spaghetti Pie, it is so yummy, wholesome and perfect for these cold winter evenings.

Delicious!! Adding our favorite RAGÚ® sauce to this traditional dish makes me happy knowing that the sauce has no artificial flavors and no high fructose corn syrup! Just like our family tradition this sauce has a tradition too! The tradition brought from Italy to America by Assunta Cantisano is that of a tomato sauce made with slowly simmered farm grown ingredients and trusted since 1937. Ragu’s commitment to high standards– just like Assunta - is shown in the process of producing RAGÚ® sauce – stemming from Assunta’s family recipe, slowly simmered to add layers of flavor.

A great recipe that makes me smile while thinking of my aunt but that is also so easy to make for our family thanks to the flavors and affordability of RAGÚ®!
