Breakfast Spaghetti

1 lb. lean sausage
½ cup chopped onions
½ cup chopped bell peppers, red and/or green
1 cup shredded cheese
6 eggs
½ cup sour cream
½ lb. uncooked spaghetti

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Cook spaghetti according to package directions, drain.  While spaghetti is cooking brown sausage in a large frying pan.  When done, drain and transfer from the pan into a large bowl.  Add onions and bell peppers to pan and sauté for about 5 minutes over medium high heat.   Add onions, peppers and cheese to sausage.  Toss to blend.  In a second bowl beat eggs and sour cream until smooth.    Spray an 8 x 8 x 2 baking dish with non-stick spray.  Cover bottom with spaghetti.  Spread sausage mix over spaghetti.  Pour egg mixture over sausage.  Bake 20-25 minutes or until firm in the center.

Comments:  I've made other dishes using spaghetti as the 'crust' so decided to see what I could do with sausage.  This came out a lot like a quiche with the spaghetti giving it a bit of a twist being used as the crust.  This can be done with bacon, cooked and crumbled, or ground beef.  If you used ground beef you might want to top it with sour cream and salsa.  This is a fun recipe to play with as you Think With Your Taste Buds.
