Spaghetti Pie

6 ounces spaghetti                                            1 cup sour cream
2 eggs, beaten                                                  1 pound Italian sausage
1/4 Cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese           1 6 oz. can tomato paste
2 tablespoons butter                                         1 cup water
1/3 cup chopped onion (optional)                                  4 ounces Mozzarella cheese, sliced

Break spaghetti in half. Cook in boiling salted water until done. Drain. While still warm combine spaghetti with eggs and Parmesan. Pour into a well greased 10 inch pie plate
and pat mixture up and around sides with a spoon. Melt butter, add onion and saute until limp. Stir in sour cream and spoon over spaghetti. Remove sausage from casing, crum-
ble and cook in skillet until done. Drain. Add tomato paste and water. Simmer 10 minutes. Spoon sausage on top of sour cream mixture. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes. Arrange Mozzarella on top and return to oven until cheese melts.

This is a family favorite.  I buy ground italian sausage instead of sausage in casing.  I also skip the onions and butter because some of the kids don't like it.  I also go a little heavier on the Parmesan cheese!
