Cheese and spaghetti are two of my favorite things in life. You can imagine my excitement while watching a cheese-themed episode of “The Best Thing I Ever Made” on the Food Network and seeing a recipe called “Cheesy Spaghetti Pie”. Chef Marc Murphy came up with a super simple & delicious concoction of four different types of cheese, eggs, and spaghetti that takes only ten minutes to cook. It’s pure genius! I loved it so much that I made it twice… in the same week. Check out Chef Murphy’s recipe below!
Put half of the spaghetti mixture in the pan and lay the American cheese on top (I prefer Land O’ Lakes yellow American slices)
Cover the American cheese with the rest of the spaghetti
Cook for about 5 minutes (or until golden brown) and flip over

Chef Marc Murphy’s Cheesy Spaghetti Pie Recipe
featured on the Food Network show “The Best Thing I Ever Made”
1 pound cooked spaghetti, cooled
1/2 cup grated Parmesan
1/2 cup grated Pecorino
1/2 cup grated Swiss
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons olive oil
4 slices American cheese
Mix the cooled spaghetti, grated cheeses and eggs together in a large bowl. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Add the oil to a large nonstick saute pan and heat to medium heat. Once hot, add a handful of the spaghetti mixture to the pan and flatten it out to the edges. Lay the American cheese on top and add another layer of the spaghetti mixture. Cook for about 5 minutes and flip, cooking for another 5 minutes on the other side until golden brown.
Turn out onto a cutting board, slice as you would a pizza and serve.
