Garlic Toasted Spaghetti Pie

From the second I saw this recipe, I knew I had to make it! Spaghetti and garlic bread baked into a pie? Yes please! It was really delicious and super easy to make!
Taste: The garlic bread is SO good, and the oozing cheese makes the dish. I don't want spaghetti without cheddar ever again.
Texture: It's garlic bread and pasta! I added more sauce to make sure it wasn't dry.
Would I make this again?: YES, I have already made it again!!

Garlic Toasted Spaghetti Pie
Found: Picky Palate

1 lb spaghetti noodles2 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 onion, finely chopped
1 lb ground beef
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon Lawry’s garlic salt
26 oz jar of your favorite pasta sauce
10 fresh basil leaves stacked, rolled and thinly sliced (chiffonade)
1/4 Cup fresh grated parmesan cheese
1 Cup shredded cheddar or mozzarella cheese
2 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1/4-1/2 teaspoons Lawry’s garlic salt
1 roll Pillsbury French Bread Loaf
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Cook pasta according to package directions, drain and set aside.
2. Heat oil in large skillet over medium heat. Saute onions for 5 minutes then add beef, salt, pepper and garlic salt to brown, about 7-9 minutes. Reduce heat to low then stir in sauce, basil leaves and cooked pasta.
3. Open French Bread and unroll it to rectangle. With a knife cut it in 2 equal parts. Take one piece and press into the bottom of a well greased springform pan pressing up the sides slightly. Bake for 10 minutes then remove from oven. Transfer approximately 3/4 of the spaghetti into the pan (or fill about 3/4 way to the top of pan) (save leftover spaghetti for later). Sprinkle top with parmesan and cheddar cheese. Take remaining piece of dough and place it over top of spaghetti trying to cover entire surface. Brush olive oil over top of dough then sprinkle with garlic salt. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until bread is just golden brown. Let cool for 10-15 minutes before slicing. Enjoy!
