Pasta for Breakfast? You Bet!

Cacio e Pepe Cups

One of my great weaknesses in life is pasta. I could literally eat it for every meal, everyday of the week. When I make it as a main dish for dinner, I always make more than needed. If I have leftover pasta that hasn't been sauced up, I will repurpose it the next day for lunch or dinner. In this case, I made a delicious easy breakfast dish with it.

Fancy But Fast

This dish is super simple to make and your friends and family will be impressed with how pretty it looks. Combine pasta with a couple of eggs for binder and Parmesan cheese. I threw in some extra cheese, because, why not? In this case I added a blend of shredded Gruyere, Cheddar and Asiago that I had on hand. Grab your muffin tin and spray it with Pam. Bake it at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. And voila! Pasta, egg, cheese yumminess.

Expand Your Horizons

You can easily modify this and add other things to the mix like sautéed mushrooms, red bell pepper or a little pesto sauce on the top. You are the master of your muffin tin filled with pasta and eggs. If you can make an omelet with it, you can include it in the dish. The one thing that I would be careful with is sauce. I would add it after it's baked and still warm from the oven so that it doesn't get too moist and mushy. You want it to have some firmness and body.

Viva Italiano!
