How to Make Spaghetti Vegetable Burger Pie

How to Make Spaghetti Vegetable Burger Pie



This is a great way to use up leftover cooked spaghetti. It is a substantial meal that will feed vegetarians and non-vegetarians alike; great accompanied with salad and steamed kale or similar dark vegetable. And the best thing? It's easy to prepare!

Ingredients

  • 4 vegetable burgers
  • 3 cups leftover cooked spaghetti
  • 1 1/2 cups pasta sauce (choose your own flavour)
  • Fresh basil leaves, chopped, to taste (dried is fine as a substitute)
  • 1 cup grated cheese or vegan cheese substitute
  • Pie dish - 9"/23cm diameter
  • Tray
  • Baking paper

Steps

  1. Assemble ingredients.
  2. Preheat oven to 350ºF/190ºC.
  3. Cut the frozen vegetable burgers into quarters.
  4. Line the pie plate with the quarters, allowing for occasional overlapping.
  5. Mix the cooked spaghetti with the sauce. Stir in basil to taste.
  6. Put the spaghetti mixture over the layered burgers. Make sure that the spaghetti mixture fills out the pie plate, completely covering the burger quarters underneath.
  7. Sprinkle cheese or cheese substitute over the top.
  8. Put the pie plate onto a tray lined with baking paper.
  9. Bake the dish on the lowest level of the oven. Allow 35 - 45 minutes cooking time, or until pasta has become crispy and the cheese is melted.
  10. Remove from oven and allow to cool 5 - 10 minutes.
  11. Slice and serve; or place directly on the table for self-service.

Tips

  • Accompany this dish with salad, mixed bean salad, steamed leaf vegetables or carrots.
  • To make this dish from uncooked spaghetti, cook approximately 100 g of dry spaghetti. Drain well before using for this recipe.
  • Substitute oregano for the basil if preferred.
