Easy Spaghetti Pie

Before she lost her sight, Martin's mom use to make "Spaghetti Pie" as one of his faves. After playing with Ramen Noodle Surprize, I came up with my own version of Spaghetti Pie- this one is easier than Ma Conger's but Martin said it's very good.

2 pkgs. ramen noodles (any brand) cooked and drained
1 pound of ground beef
2 Cups grated Mozzerella cheese
1 can of mushrooms, drained
1 clove finely minced garlic
About 2 tablespoon finely chopped basil
About 1/4 onion chopped
1 jar of spaghetti sauce

Saute Garlic, onions and basil in about 1 Tablespoon of olive oil. Then add gound beef and brown. Boil Ramen noodles as directed on pkg. Remembering to double water amount. Do not cook longer than directed. Drain noodles and set aside. Drain the oil from the gound beef. Add spaghetti sauce ands mushrooms. Stir well. In pie pan (spray with vegetable spray or take a paper towel or small kitchen towel and rub baking pan with olive oil) place drained ramen noodles. Next spread sauce mixture on top. Final layer is the grated mozerella cheese. Place in oven (400) and heat until cheese is melted. About 5 to 10 minutes. (I used a toaster oven for this at 375) Hint: Try using a Round Cake or torte pan as the sides are higher
