This recipe comes from Food TV. It is a delicious recipe, so I wanted to share on here. I think it is a great sunday meal.
- 3⁄4 lb spaghetti
- 9 tablespoons olive oil
- 5 garlic cloves, coarsely chopped
- 1 small onion, thinly sliced
- 16 cherry tomatoes, halved
- 16 kalamata olives, pitted and halved
- 4 eggs
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 2 teaspoons kosher salt
- fresh ground black pepper
- 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional)
- 6 fresh basil leaves, chopped
- 4 ounces fontina, grated
- 8 ounces feta, crumbled
- 8 ounces parmesan cheese, shredded
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
- Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Generously add salt and 3 tablespoons of oil and add the spaghetti. Bring back to a boil and cook for 11 to 13 minutes until the spaghetti is just tender. Drain into a colander and rinse under cold water. Return the spaghetti to the pot and set aside.
- Heat 2 tablespoons of the olive oil in a medium skillet over medium heat for 1 minute. Add the garlic and onion and cook for 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the tomatoes, kalamatas, 1 teaspoon of salt and a few grinds of pepper and cook for an additional 5 minutes until the tomatoes begin to break down. Remove the mixture from the heat and set aside.
- Whisk the eggs and cream together in a large mixing bowl. Add the remaining teaspoon of salt, a few grinds of pepper, the red pepper flakes, basil, fontina, feta, 4 ounces of the Parmesan and the tomato mixture. Mix in the spaghetti.
- Heat the remaining olive oil in a 10-inch skillet over high heat. Add the spaghetti mixture, reduce the heat to medium and cook for 5 minutes. Transfer the skillet to the preheated oven for 30 minutes until the center of the pie is set and the top is golden.
- Remove from the oven and let cool for 10 minutes. Run a spatula around the edges and underneath the pie to loosen. Place a large plate over the skillet and invert the pie onto the plate. Place another plate onto the pie and invert again. Let the pie set for an additional 10 minutes.
I had to adjust a few ingred. since I was out: mozz (instead of fontina), ff half and half (cream), and omitted the fresh basil, STILL, I enjoyed it very much! I will make again with the reg. ingred. but I do think the ff half and half worked fine. Thanks Southern Sugar Dumplin, for posting. Roxygirl
I actually made this when I first saw Dan and Steve make it on their show and have made it a few more times since. We absolutley love the fresh tast of the tomatoes, olives, basil and the cheese blend. I like to make it Friday night and have it around for the weekend. I have also successfully frozen individual slices for snacks at a later time!
