Directions

  1. Cook spaghetti according to package directions; drain. Stir in 4 tablespoons of the pesto and the egg; set aside.
  2. Coat a 9-inch pie plate with cooking spray. Press spaghetti mixture onto bottom and up sides of prepared pie plate, forming a crust. In a small bowl combine ricotta and the remaining 2 tablespoons pesto; spread over the top and up the sides of the pasta crust.
  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a medium saucepan stir together frozen Turkey Meatballs, pasta sauce, olives, and the water. Bring to boiling, stirring occasionally; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, about 5 minutes or just until meatballs are heated through, stirring twice. Uncover pasta crust. Spoon meatball mixture into pasta crust. Cover pie loosely with foil.
  4. Bake for 25 minutes. Sprinkle with pizza cheese. Bake, uncovered, about 5 minutes more or until heated through. If desired, sprinkle with snipped fresh basil.
