"spaghetti mangia"

my version of mangia's best dish
because i am not privy to mangia's recipe, and because i was too lazy to go to the store, my recipe went like this:
boil a bunch of spaghetti (i used whole wheat,) while that's cooking, mix together in a big bowl
garlic - to taste
natural yogurt
some eggs
shredded mozzarella
salt and pepper
then, when the spaghetti is done, drain it of course, and mix it into the dairy festival.  then pour the whole lot into a lasagna pan and top with some sort of delicious sliced cheese, i used provel, because i'm addicted to it.   then cook in oven at oh, 375 or so, for say 30 minutes?  i can't remember.  it will be fine as long as the eggs cook.  i just keep an eye on the cheese on top; when it is lightly browned, the rest is done.   let rest for 10 mins, then cut into squares and serve with your favorite (hot) tomato sauce poured all over the top, or set the square in a little pool of sauce if you prefer.

I am glad you think that "Spaghetti Mangina" is Mangina's best dish. Because so do I. That means it must be objectively true.

Eileen, this looks fantastic! I am always looking for dinner ideas that both Zack and I and Xander would like and this would work. I barely have time to make one meal and am certainly not interested in making two. Thanks for sharing!

you pretty much hit the recipe on the mark - sans the yogurt (but what a good addition) and they put in a ton of oregano.

happy cookings.
