Weelicious Tomato Sauce:


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a deep-dish pie plate with olive oil.
  2. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook the spaghetti according to the package directions until al dente. (This is a good time to make the tomato sauce.) Drain then transfer the spaghetti to a large bowl. Add 1 tablespoon of the olive oil and toss to coat. Set aside.
  3. Whisk the eggs in a medium bowl, then whisk in 1/4 cup of the Parmesan cheese. Pour over the spaghetti and toss to coat. Transfer to the prepared pie plate and spread to make a "pie crust."
  4. Heat the remaining 1 tablespoon oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the turkey, 1/2 teaspoon salt, garlic powder and onion powder; cook, breaking up the turkey with a wooden spoon, until the turkey is cooked through, about 5 minutes.
  5. Pour the tomato sauce over the turkey and stir to combine. Set aside.
  6. Place the ricotta, Italian seasoning and the remaining 1/4 cup Parmesan in a bowl and stir to combine. Spread over the pasta, then layer on the meat sauce and finally, sprinkle with the mozzarella.
  7. Place the pie plate on a rimmed baking sheet and bake until the pasta is golden brown and the cheese is bubbling, about 30 minutes.
  8. Let the spaghetti pie cool slightly, then cut into wedges and serve.
