My beloved late grandmother is and always will be the best cook I've ever known. Mama (although my grandmother, I called her Mama) made nearly everything from scratch. She loved making a variety of desserts with apples, but her homemade apple jelly was my favorite. It is by far the best jelly I’ve ever tasted, and to this day I can barely eat any store bought jelly without frowning at it. In fact, I rarely eat jelly at all anymore because I miss her infamous apple jelly so much.
My mom used to make spaghetti pie periodically throughout the years, and I've always loved it. When I started making it for myself, I altered the recipe quite a bit in an effort to accommodate my own taste buds better. For instance, I like a lot of garlic, and I especially love parmesan cheese, so I add a healthy amount of both directly to the pasta, the crust of the pie. To be perfectly honest, I actually use more garlic than I list below, so feel free to add more if you aren't afraid of it! Just be prepared for some alone time after you eat this pie.
