Cook this easy spaghetti pie for a quick and budget-friendly weeknight dinner.
8 ounces uncooked spaghetti
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
8 large eggs
1/2 cup milk
1/3 cup cooked bacon crumbles (such as Hormel brand)
3 scallions (green portions only), thinly sliced
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1/4 cup finely shredded Parmesan cheese
How to Make It
Bring a pot of salted water to a boil, add spaghetti and cook according to package directions, stirring often, until al dente. Drain pasta and rinse well with cold water.
Preheat oven to 400°F. Grease an ovenproof 9- or 10-inch skillet with about 1/2 Tbsp. butter.
In a bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, bacon, scallion, pepper and 3 Tbsp. Parmesan. Add spaghetti; mix well. Transfer mixture to skillet, spreading evenly. Dot with remaining butter and sprinkle remaining 1 Tbsp. Parmesan on top. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, until center is set and top is golden. Let cool for 10 minutes before serving.
Little do most people know: you can round up the same ingredients (scale the eggs way back), you can make mind-blowing spaghetti carbonara, and for about the same cost (or less, since you're using less eggs and omitting milk). For little additional cost, I like to add carrots, peas & mushrooms to my carbonara, but that's just me. Nonetheless, what at a fumble, myrecipes.com SMH 😕
Too bland. Biggest problem however...too dense. The eggs pasted the pasta together. Each bite is a "clump". Just awful. Like another stated...absolutely a complete waste of eggs! A shame too, it was a simple recipe.
