Italian Meat Pie

This is a recipe of my Mothers. This is an ideal meal to make for guests who are less adventurous in their eating. The flavors are familiar but the dish is put together in a slightly different way. While this recipe does not photograph well, it is an easy crowd pleaser!

Italian Meat Pie
1 1lb. ground beef (I use turkey)
salt and pepper
Italian seasoning
1 small onion, diced
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 (8 oz.) can tomato sauce
1 pkg. dried spaghetti mix
8 oz. sour cream (I use light)
8 oz. shredded mozzarella
1 pkg. crescent rolls (I use reduced fat)
garlic salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Brown meat in a little oil. Season with salt, pepper and Italian seasoning. Add onion and garlic and stir until just softened. Remove from heat and add tomato sauce and spaghetti mix. Stir and spread into 9 x13 casserole dish. Spread sour cream evenly over meat mixture. Sprinkle cheese over sour cream. Unroll crescent rolls over top of casserole and stretch to fit dish. Brush with melted margarine and sprinkle with garlic salt. Bake for approximately 20-25 minutes or until crescent rolls are done.
