What's for dinner tonight (Spaghetti pie)

This is 1 of my fave dishes. I haven't made it for a while.

Spaghetti pie

1/2 pound cooked spaghetti
2 tablespoons melted butter or olive oil
2 large eggs well-beaten
1/2 cup parmesan cheese, plus
2 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese
1 cup ricotta cheese
1 cup prepared spaghetti sauce, of your choosing
1/2 cup (2 ounces) shredded mozzarella cheese

1 Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Toss hot spaghetti in large bowl with the butter or olive oil.
2 Combine eggs and 1/2 cup grated Parmesan in a small bowl and stir into spaghetti.
3 Pour spaghetti mixture into a lightly greased 10 inch pie plate and form into a crust.
4 Spread ricotta evenly over crust, but not to the edge & Top with spaghetti sauce.
5 Bake uncovered for about 25 minutes.
6 Top with with shredded mozzarella and bake until cheese melts - about 5 minutes longer.
7 Remove from oven and sprinkle with remaining 2 tablespoons of Parmesan cheese.
8 Cool 10 minutes before cutting into wedges.
