Expert Tips

Italians re-cook pasta on the stove with eggs like a frittata, and Americans stir leftover tomato sauce into cooked spaghetti and bake it into a pie. This colorful and tasty spaghetti pie combines favorite Italian and Southwestern flavors.

Use lean ground beef in place of the ground turkey.

Use a combination of cheeses from your refrigerator to add flavor to this pie; shred cheese and measure 1 1/2 cups.

For best flavor, use a salsa with medium heat level.
