Spaghetti Nests

I found this recipe a little while back and am totally in love.  This is one of the best alternatives to plain old spaghetti.  We like to to add our homemade chorizo spaghetti sauce and some garlic bread or garlic knots and yum!

  • 200 g (0.45lbs~ half a box)Spaghetti
  • 3 tbsp Parmesan, grated
  • 2 tbsp Breadcrumbs
  • 2 Large eggs
  • 3 tbsp Whipping cream
  • 1 Tomato, diced
  • 50 g (0.11 lbs)Prosciutto, diced
  • 125 g (0.28 lbs) Fresh Mozzarella cheese, diced
  • 3 tbsp Chives, chopped
  • Salt and pepper
  1. Cook pasta in large pot of boiling salted water until al dente, about 8 minutes. Drain pasta. Return to same pot and toss with grated Parmesan and breadcrumbs.
  2. Use a fork to stick into the spaghetti and bring up a heaping forkful. Turn and twist the pasta to form a nest. Repeat until you have 8 nests. Place them on a baking tray lined with paper. At the same time, preheat the oven to 200C/400F.
  3. Stir together the eggs and cream until just blended. Season to taste. Add in diced tomatoes, Prosciutto, Mozzarella, and chopped chives. Divide the mixture and spoon them in the center of each nest. Bake the spaghetti nests on second rack from the bottom of the oven for 15-18 minutes.
