This has been in our family for as long as I remember. It is truly "comfort" food to me! Easy recipe for those nights when you are too tired to cook a whole dinner, just add a salad or green veggie, and you have a nutritious meal!
- 1⁄2 lb pasta, of your choice (I like thin spaghetti, angel hair or 1/2 lb elbow macaroni)
- 6 eggs
- 1⁄4 cup butter (or more to taste. Butter tastes better than margarine, but you may use margarine)
- Cook pasta to al dente, according to package directions.
- Drain well.
- Add butter to pan, and allow to melt.
- Return drained pasta and mix well with butter.
- In a separate bowl, beat eggs well.
- Add the eggs to pan, and mix well.
- Return to med heat, and stir CONTINUOUSLY, scraping egg from bottom, until eggs are scrambled well and cling to pasta. This step goes very quickly, so watch pot closely.
- Serve immediately.
- To easily clean pan, rinse with COLD water. Empty pan of water, and add a generous portion of SALT, and a dot of dish detergent to pan. Scrub with a scrubbie under cold water until clean. Finish by running under hot water or place pan in dishwasher to disinfect.
This is a great recipe! It was super late and I needed something fast and yummy to do, so this was great. I did add cherry tomatoes, mushrooms and olives to the recipe, simply because I was starving and felt like adding other flavors. I will definitely repeat the recipe and reccomend it.
It was OK although I feel a little ... weird after eating it. It's a good snack or quick meal but I would never make this for other people, and probably won't make it again for a while. It has kind of a... college student vibe, a quick mishmash of a few inexpensive foods that somehow says "I don't care, I just need to cram for these finals tomorrow morning." I don't think I could stomach this if I added cheese or ketchup. Throw a splash of soy sauce in the pan for a dirty but decent tasting Chinese take-out vibe. Tips: It's very butter heavy, so use good quality butter. It works well with angel hair; thicker noodles may lead to poor results here. It's important to start mixing the egg the moment it hits the pan or it will cook without mixing with the pasta.
I just made this recipe, its yummy! I added fried onions and loads of cheddar cheese, its full of flavour!
