Shelly's Cheap, Easy and Delicious Carb Fix

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Ms B.

I adopted this recipe when Shelly left the site. Shelly is a spunky and intelligent girl who knows that all good comfort comes from carbs. I tried this with whole wheat spaghetti one evening for my solo dinner. It is a garlicky, filling dish with the eggs adding just a bit of protein to satisfy your hunger long term. Shelly found this in a Frugal Gourmet cookbook.

This is one heck of a carb fest! I cut the recipe in half, and still had more than enough for a full meal. I added some flat leaf parsley at the end. Very easy and very tasty. Thanks ms bold, and special thanks to Shelly. :)
