Hi there! I'm posting with no stars b/c I modified this so extensively. First, I used penne rigate b/c it looked similar but was a little prettier and less expensive. Second, I used munster instead of provolone as my silly market didn't carry provolone. Third, I creamed the onion into the egg mix since husband doesn't like the texture of onions. Third, I only had 3 eggs so I used the yolk out of one of them in addition to all 3 whites. Other than that, I followed the directions precisely. :D Next time, I would leave the onions chopped extra fine on top to add to the color, and I might use a bit of paprika also for the same reason. I would also try shredding the cheese into the egg mix and folding in by hand as the egg mix baked up, well, eggy textured and I would have prefered something a little creamier. It was overall an attractive dish, very easy, and tasted good. Subtle flavor, but good. It's definitely comfort food and I will be making this with the above modifications in the future, and I will try the recipe as written. Overall I would give it 4 stars.
