Both pie and mac and cheese are tasty, indulgent treats. Combined, they take comfort food to a whole new level.

The idea comes from Justin Chapple, Senior Editor at Food & Wine. He describes the dish over at Time:
This pasta pie is a fun riff on mac and cheese. I use three types of cheese here: Fontina and cheddar, which melt beautifully, as well as Parmigiano-Reggiano to create the crispest edges.
Sold. In Chapple's recipe, you mix cooked spaghetti with the cheeses, eggs and milk, then add the mixture into a bundt pan and bake for about 35 minutes. Once it cools, you turn the pan upside down onto a platter, then cut into wedges and serve.
You could also skip the bundt pan and make spaghetti pie the way Bon Appetit does it in the video above; it comes out just as crispy and cheesy. Either way, this seems like a perfect comfort food option and a unique potluck offering. For more detail, head to the link below.
