  1. Made this tonight. Had my four-year old help hoping she would like it. No dice…”too much sauce”. But, my two year old was a fan and my husband and I thought it was REALLY good. Still searching for something we can ALL eat and not end up making three separate dinners. But, I will def make this again…for me!

  2. We work around an egg allergy in our house. Do you have any recommended alternatives to the egg in this recipe?

  3. Spaghetti Pie isn’t something found here in the UK so I don’t know if it’s meant as a snack or meal, It’s lovely, I baked as written but cooked a pot of veggy-mince/onion/garlic which is what I normally do when going the Bolognese route to add after to make it a dinner-meal (the vegetables are an addition in those quantities, not a meal). Tomato Sauce here is ‘Ketchup’ but we have ‘Passata’, sieved tomatoes in cartons/jars, so used that. Went well with an Italian vegetable medley, ratatouille. Will make again, loved the cheese amounts, will be good in lunchboxes.

  4. My 3 young kiddos love this! It’s been on our weekly/monthly rotation for a while now. Such a win win since it’s nutritious, meat free (for this veggie loving mom) and everyone in our household gives it 2 thumbs up 🙂
