Pasta Pie

Great Use For Leftovers!
Difficulty: Easy
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 30 minutes

Is it just me, or do we all cook Spaghetti and Meatballs to feed an army.  I always have leftovers, and I truly like it better the second day. But, I really wanted to change it up so it does not feel like the same meal!  This is great to take to the office for lunch or a late night snack!
