Spaghetti Pie

1# ground turkey
1# ground beef or bison
1 lg. carrot - chopped
8 oz. mushrooms - sliced
¼-½ lg. purple onion - chopped

½c white wine or vodka
24oz. red pasta sauce
1t-1T salt and pepper

½c - 1c sour cream
4oz. parmesan cheese

Combine the first group together in a large frying pan, or saute' in batches, drain off any excess fat and liquid, then add the alcohol and red sauce.  In a 3-5 quart pot, cook 12 oz. of your favorite spaghetti type pasta, angel hair, linguini, or fettuccini.  Drain and rinse with cold water or just drain.  Rinsing will keep the pasta more separate and the sauce not adhering as well, but it seems to work better in this recipe.

Spray or butter a 9"x13" glass baking pan.  Layer with half the pasta and half the red sauce, then top with remaining pasta.  When the remaining meat and sauce mixture cools, stir in the sour cream and pour this over the top layer of pasta.  Sprinkle on parmesan cheese.  Bake an additional 15-20 minutes now, or refrigerate, heat and serve later.  This would also freeze well.

Mmmm, Comfort Food! . .Lin
