      Not quite a Spaghetti Pie; not quite a Tuna Casserole.  It's an updated, combined, healthier version. 

Spaghetti Timbale with Tuna

Total time: 50 minutes
    Spaghetti Pie with Tuna. The spaghetti forms a thick layer on the bottom with the tuna and cheese in layers on top.  If you used a spring form pan you could let it cool a bit and then unmold it for a proper timbale.  We're never that patient.
