Yay! It’s that time of year again!

The time when Yinzerella over at the marvellous Dinner is Served 1972 gathers together lots of mad pie recipes and dishes them out. I was THRILLED to get a recipe for Spaghetti Pie – what on EARTH?!

Luckily for me, I can link this recipe to a movie star. Because I had never heard of such a thing until my chum Mark Brisenden mentioned a few weeks ago that he often makes Humphrey Bogart’s spaghetti LOAF with leftover chilli. That is going on the test cooking list for sure!

Another lovely link is the fact that Greg over at Recipes4Rebels

Greg’s brilliant artwork

…ended up with the recipe I submitted, Ron Masak’s Artichoke Pie.

Oh yes, SHERIFF METZGER OF CABOT COVE! I cannot wait to read Greg’s account of how it turned out! Oh, and one more thing. Mark found Humph’s recipe for Spaghetti Loaf in Greg’s wonderful cookbook, Recipes For Rebels.

Don’t you love it when things come full circle?

So here’s my spaghetti pie! It was such a fun thing to make

Spaghetti nest with meaty cheesy filling…

and whaddya know? It was DELICIOUS!

It sliced! Like a pie!

This is a HUGE pie – goodness knows when I’ll eat the rest of it, but when I have, I will make a Humphrey Bogart Spaghetti Loaf for sure!

You want to make a spaghetti pie too dontcha? Well here you go!

This recipe was selected for the cookalong by Yinzerella herself so THANK YOU DEAR. The recipe was from the splendidly titled, The Meats Cookbook, published in 1971.

I am almost tempted to get me a copy so I can make this splendiferous item!
