Did You Know...
What used to be called “spaghetti sauce” is now most often called “marinara sauce” because its uses stretch far beyond spaghetti. Either sauce will work, and the flavor choices are endless!
Success
The pie is covered with aluminum foil to keep the edge of the crust moist, not dry and chewy.
