Leftover Spaghetti Pie

I had a request from Princess the other night for spaghetti with meatballs. So I whipped her up some for her supper, you see it isn't very often she requests a meal. Princess is a very picky eater and when she does eat it is usually pasta.
My spaghetti is pretty simply
1/2 lb of ground beef, browned
3/4 bottle of store bought sauce (I used Sweet Tomato and Basil)
Green pepper, chopped
Onion, chopped fine
Spaghetti, Whole Wheat, enough to make 6 servings.

I add the veggies to the browned meat and soften them a bit. Then add the sauce. Cook the spaghetti noodles as per the package. Drain and return to pot then pour over the meat/ sauce mixture. Then serve.
Watched Princess and Monkey eat it up.
There was enough leftover for the next day. So I tried to come up with an different take on the spaghetti so I thought I had heard of spaghetti pie once while I was watching David Rocco's La Dolce Vita on the Food Network Canada but I couldn't remember all the ingredients. So I did a search on the internet and nothing was quick enough for my family.
So I took various different recipes and came up with one that was a hit with my Italian hubby. Here it is:
1 tbsp oil heated over medium heat in a large skillet
Add the leftover spaghetti and start warming up the leftover.
Whisk together 4 large eggs, 3/4 cup of milk, 1/2 cup of parmesan cheese, salt and pepper to taste, until well blended.
Pour over the spaghetti in the skillet and be sure to cover all of the spaghetti. Cook for 8 minutes or until the underside is brown. Using a large plate flip the skillet and spaghetti on to the plate. then flip it back on the uncooked side into the skillet. Cook for 8 minutes more or until brown. Pour onto the plate you used to flip it and serve.
I then grated some mozzarella cheese onto to the spaghetti pie and garnish with parley.
I hope everyone enjoys it, I know we did. It was delish!!!
I didn't take a picture of it but will the next time I cook it. I forgot and by the time I remembered it was all gone...hubby ate it (this from somebody who doesn't care for pasta after years eating it everyday growing up)

Ciao for now,
