  3. Add drained corn, beans, olives, and green pepper. Simmer another 5 minutes. 
  4. Lightly grease 2 10" pie plates and arrange 1/2 of spaghetti noodles in the bottom of each plate as a crust.
  5. Divide meat sauce into the 2 plates of "crust" and sprinkle 1/2 of the cheese over each. 
  6. Bake at 375° (190°C) for 40 minutes. 
  7. Cut and serve. Makes 2 - 10" pies. 

*Make sure you use a large enough skillet for the sauce so you don't decorate your stove with it when mixing.
