Spaghetti Nests


This is a pretty simple recipe and almost impossible to mess up. Plus it’s a fun spin on a favorite dish. 

  • 1/2c Parmesan 
  • 1-2eggs 
  • 1 container of Ricotta cheese
  • Spaghetti noodles 
  • Spaghetti sauce
  • Meat and/or veg
  • 1/2c Shredded cheese Colby or mozzarella 
  • Muffin tin 
  1. The first thing you’ll want to do is cook and drain your pasta (according to the box). 
  2. While the pasta is cooking, whisk the eggs, Parmesan and 2 tbs of ricotta cheese together in a bowl; Also cook your meat and/or veggies .
  3. Preheat oven to 350*
  4. Next drain the noodles and add them to the egg-cheese mixture, stir until completely coated. 
  5. Spray your muffin tin with olive oil, then spoon the noodles in accordingly. Create slight indents in each cup to create a ‘nest’. 
  6. Next spoon in your meat/veggies, a dollop of ricotta (as pictured below), and add the sauce on top and shredded cheese. 
  7. Place in oven for 30-45minutes ( or longer ) until noodles start to crisp up. 
  8. Let cool for 3-5 minutes before using a spoon or rubber spatula to help you remove the nests from the cups. 
  9. Serve and enjoy. Add more sauce/cheese if you wish. 

Let me know how yours turn out.
