Excellent! Thanks for sharing! I had a hard time figuring out how much 1.5 cups of pasta is so I tried 250 grams and it seemed like too much so I added an extra egg. It came out great but I think I'll try less pasta next time. Also will try more spinach (I added butter and pepper to this after cooking) and possibly some pre-cooked chicken. Thanks again!
