Expert Tips

Spaghetti pie originated as a creative use for leftover cooked spaghetti. This pie combines two family favorites, spaghetti and chili.

Look for zesty diced tomatoes next to other canned diced tomatoes in the grocery store.

Plain canned diced tomatoes can be used in place of zesty tomatoes; season them with chili powder and black pepper.
