Start to Finish: 1 hour, 20 minutes

Servings: 6

Ingredients

  • 8 oz. spaghetti, cooked according to the package directions and rinsed
  • 1 1/2 cups marinara sauce
  • 2 tsp. olive oil
  • 3 sweet Italian sausages (12 oz. total), casings removed
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup shredded mozzarella
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan
  • Crushed red pepper and fresh basil leaves, for garnish
  • Store-bought refrigerated pesto, for serving

Preparation

1. Preheat the oven to 375°. In a large bowl, toss the spaghetti with the marinara. In a 10-inch ovenproof skillet, heat the oil over medium. Add the sausages and cook, breaking up the meat with a spoon, until browned, about 6 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the sausages to the bowl of spaghetti.

2. In a small bowl, whisk the eggs, 1/2 cup mozzarella, and 1/4 cup Parmesan. Mix into the spaghetti and transfer to the skillet. Stir the spaghetti over medium-high heat until heated through, about 5 minutes. Cover with foil and bake until set, 25 to 30 minutes. Top with the remaining 1/4 cup mozzarella. Bake, uncovered, until the cheese browns in spots, 10 to 15 minutes. Let cool in the skillet for about 15 minutes.

3. Run a knife around the edge of the skillet to release the spaghetti pie. Slide it onto a cutting board and cut into wedges. Top with the crushed red pepper, basil, and the remaining 1/4 cup Parmesan. Serve with the pesto.
