I know what youâ€™re thinking.
â€œWhat the flying eff is that?!â€
But let me explain.
Last week I sharedÂ the meal my 2 year old choseÂ and today Iâ€™m bringing you the one my 5 year old chose. Â This was a tough decision for him â€“ he went back and forth between a burger and this for probably and hour before I finally demanded an answer. And then every night heâ€™d ask â€œIs it spaghetti pie night?! Is it?! IS IT?!â€
This pie is great because itâ€™s one of those things that looks a lot more complicated than it is. Itâ€™s almost like a lasagna but more fun since you see all the thin spaghetti noodles when you cut into it. All you need to do is make your regular spaghetti recipe and then you pour it into a springform pan lined with puff pastry and top it with another sheet of puff pastry. Seriously, it could not be easier. It does have to bakeÂ foreverÂ so itâ€™s not something you can whip up after work but itâ€™s great for maybe a Sunday dinner.
My kid has raved and raved about it to anyone who will listen and Iâ€™m sure it will be one of the first thing he asks me to make for his daddy when he comes home.
