Hey, here's a great text that you can send your family during the day: That you're making their favorite dish for dinner tonight, and that it'll be ready and waiting for 'em when they get home. How? With an easy make-ahead idea. Watch! After we cook and drain about a half a pound of spaghetti, we drizzle it with a bit of olive oil, and we toss it all with a few beaten eggs and a load of grated parmesan cheese. We pour that into a pie plate. Sorta form a crust, like I'm doing here. Easy enough so far... On top of that goes a layer of ricotta cheese, and that can be regular or part-skim, and any brands will do. Just make sure we spread it evenly. Cover that with some spaghetti sauce... and that can be bottled or homemade, and on goes a handful of pepperoni. We can even use a lighter turkey pepperoni if we want. We bake it until it sets up, sprinkle on some shredded mozzarella, and then pop it back in the oven until it's all melty and done. Now just make sure you let it sit for a few minutes before cutting it into wedges. Maybe a little bit more parmesan to finish it off, and it's ready to serve. Yup, layer after layer of all our Italian favorites in the form of a pie. Look, the recipe for "Pepperoni Spaghetti Pie" is online now, just waiting for your gang whenever they get home. You know they'll come running once they find out tonight you're serving their all-time favorite-that starts and ends with... "OOH IT'S SO GOOD!!"
