Unlikely. And what's not to love? In this weeknight dinner, creamy vodka sauce marries flavorful Italian sausage, kale, and fragrant sage while eggs and creamy fontina cheese bind everything together. This fun and impressive spaghetti pie is dolloped with ricotta for added richness that’s hard to resist. Bonus: as the pie bakes, the tomato sauce caramelizes to create the most scrumptious crispy edges. If you don’t have a springform pan, you can use a parchment-lined 9-inch cake pan that’s at least 3 inches tall. Ingredients 12 oz. spaghetti 1 Tbsp. olive oil 12 oz. sweet Italian turkey sausage 1 5-oz. pkg. baby kale 2 Tbsp. chopped fresh sage, plus small leaves for garnish 3/4 tsp. kosher salt 1 32-oz. jar vodka sauce 2 large eggs 7 oz. shredded fontina cheese, (about 1 3/4 cups), divided Cooking spray 1/3 cup whole milk ricotta cheese Directions Preheat oven to 400°F with rack 6 inches from top. Cook spaghetti according to package directions for al dente; drain. Meanwhile, heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high. Add sausage; cook, breaking it up with a wooden spoon, until browned and cooked through, about 4 minutes. Add kale, chopped sage, and salt; cook, stirring constantly, until kale starts to wilt, about 1 minute. Add vodka sauce; bring to a simmer over medium-high. Simmer, stirring occasionally, until starting to thicken, about 5 minutes. Whisk eggs in a large heatproof bowl. Slowly add 1/2 cup hot vodka sauce, whisking constantly, until eggs are heated through. Add remaining vodka sauce mixture, cooked spaghetti, and 1 cup fontina; toss gently with tongs until pasta is evenly coated. Transfer to a 9-inch springform pan or cake pan coated with cooking spray. Dollop with ricotta and sprinkle with remaining 3/4 cup fontina. Bake until cheese has melted and edges begin to caramelize, about 20 minutes. Increase oven temperature to broil. Broil until cheese is golden brown, 4 to 5 minutes. Let cool for 15 minutes. Garnish with sage leaves.
