How I Enslave Men with Pasta

Food can be the deal breaker in a relationship.  If man isn't a good feeder, I'd probably kicked him to the curb.  There are obviously many other reasons to be with me: I'm good in bed, I have a beautiful bum, I'm fun, I'm good in bed, I have great taste in music, I have a snazzy personality, I'm good in bed, I have sexy hair, I have a good heart and I'm good in bed.  See, you want to marry me now too, don't you.

My one crown jewel is my Spaghetti Pie. Men just can't get enough of it.  It's slighty pathetic to fall for this dish and not something more complex.  I saw a similar recipe in a diet magazine and thought, "you know, that would be awesome if it just has some fat in it."  So, Lovers, I give you my secret.  If you're single, serve this to your next conquest.  I guarantee they'll be your love slave before the last bite.  But, don't use low fat or inferior ingredients.  It will ruin the taste of the dish.  It will also really piss me off.

Spaghetti Pie

1 lb fresh ground beef & sausage mixed (take sausage out of casing)
3 cups homemade marinara (or the jarred stuff - but it better be the good kind)
8 oz sour cream
1/2 c chopped green onions (green and white parts)
8 oz cream cheese, softened
5 cups hot cooked thin spaghetti
2 1/2 cups fresh shredded mozzarella cheese
Good olive oil


1. Preheat oven to 350
2. Drizzle a tablespoon of olive oil in a large skillet.  Cook meat in a large skillet over medium heat until browned, stirring to crumble. Drain well, and return meat to pan. Stir in salt, pepper, and marinara sauce. Bring to a simmer, reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes.
3. Combine the sour cream, green onions, cream cheese and 1 cup of mozzarella cheese in a small bowl, and set aside. Place spaghetti noodles in a casserole dish and toss with a little olive oil.  Spread the sour cream mixture over spaghetti noodles. Top with meat mixture. Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Cover and bake at 350 for 35 minutes. Uncover, bake an additional 5 minutes or until cheese is bubbly. Yield 6 servings.
