Every bit as scrumptious as it looks! I’ve been really looking forward to making this ever since ncmysteryshopper posted her wonderfully enticing photograph. We enjoyed this for today’s brunch with Lori’s Savory Sweet Potatoes Recipe #163200. I added an onion (minced), doubled the garlic, the olives and the mushrooms: just love those ingredients. I was thinking of following ncmysteryshopper’s suggestion of reducing the amount of liquid but decided I had enough extra filling to make that unnecessary. I then combined 6 eggs with the parmesan, a teaspoon of dried thyme and the spaghetti before adding them to the pan, and after they had cooked on the stove top, I sprinkled a handful of a tasty cheese on top, then followed ncmysteryshopper’s suggestion of transferring the pan to the oven (for about five minutes) to ensure that it was fully cooked. This made generous servings for four, but three of us finished it all – without any difficulty! This is a wonderfully versatile recipe. I’m sure I’ll have fun making it quite differently each time I make it. Thanks Dienia!
Wonderful recipe for left over noodles! This was so easy...but I deviated because I did not print out the recipe and just wrote down the ingredients so I actually followed it to step 5 and then mixed everything together in a bowl and put in pan (THEN I came to computer and read step 6 LOL) but, it came out perfect!!! I added 4 more eggs to the recipe and only used half the broth. I also mixed in a bunch of leftover mozzarella because I needed to use it up. I dumped it into the pan and cooked it until the bottom was done... As the top was not done (because I stuffed so much stuff in the pan) I put it in the oven until the top was cooked. This was wonderful! Thank you so much dienia!
