Spaghetti Pie

6 oz. spaghetti
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 well-beaten eggs
1 cup cottage cheese
1 lb. ground beef, cooked and drained
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 bottle Prego spaghetti sauce
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

Cook the spaghetti according to package directions; drain (should be about 3 cups spaghetti). Stir margarine into hot spaghetti and then add Parmesan cheese and the well beaten eggs. When spaghetti is well coated, form spaghetti into a crust in a buttered 10-inch pie plate. Spread cottage cheese over bottom of spaghetti crust. Mix ground beef, onion, and spaghetti sauce together and spread the sauce over cottage cheese. Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees for 20 minutes; then sprinkle with mozzarella cheese and bake 5 more minutes. Let pie stand for 5 minutes before cutting into pie shape pieces.
