Eleanora's Spaghetti Pie

Created as a use for leftover pasta, Eleanora Scarpetta's satisfying family recipe is baked in a deep cake pan. The cheese binds the pasta together, and the result is a “pie” that slices beautifully.

  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, room temperature
  • Coarse salt
  • 1 pound spaghetti
  • 6 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 pound mozzarella cheese, shredded (about 4 cups)

  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.with rack in center. Butter a 10-inch-by-3-inch cake pan. Line the bottom with parchment paper; set aside.

  2. Bring a large pot of water to a boil; add salt. Cook spaghetti, according to package instructions, until al dente. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine eggs, mozzarella, soppressata, pecorino Romano, heavy cream, dried parsley, salt, and pepper. Stir to combine. Drain spaghetti, and add to the egg-and-cheese mixture; stir to combine. Pour mixture into prepared pan, and cover with aluminum foil.

  3. Bake about 40 minutes. Remove foil, and bake until lightly browned and crisp on top, 20 minutes more.

    This recipe is great! I found it here years ago, and have made it many times. I serve it with a simple marinara on the side. My kids ask for it over and over (one just did tonight!).
    It does make a lot !

    My mom has a similar spaghetti pie recipe and I am anxious to try this one and compare the two.
