Sausage Spaghetti Pie

4 oz. uncooked spaghetti
1/2 pound kielbasa, diced
1 cup garden-style spaghetti sauce
1 cup reduced fat ricotta cheese
3 egg whites
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese

Cook spaghetti according to package directions. Meanwhile, in a small, nonstick skillet, saute sausage for 3-4 min or until browned; stir in spaghetti sauce

In a small bowl, combine ricotta cheese and 1 egg white; set aside. Drain spaghetti; add Parmesan cheese and remainin egg whites. Press onto the bottom and up the sides of a 9-in. deep-dish pie plate coated with nonstick cooking spray. Spoon ricotta mixture into crust. Top with sausage mixture.

Bake uncovered at 350 for 20 min. Sprinkle with mozerella cheese. Bake 5 minutes longer or until cheese is melted and filling is heated through. Let stand for 5 mintues before slicing.

This recipe is from the Jan/Feb issue of 'Simple and Delicious'. It was made to be a healthy, low fat recipe. However, we only had regular kielbasa in the freezer and the recipe called for low-fat turkey kielbasa.

The spaghetti pie looks interesting. I think I'll try making it (without the sausage) for a certain vegetarian relative.
