    Vegetarian

People often associate eggs only with breakfast, but we think they make a fantastic dinner choice as well. Used here in our Pasta Mama, the result is a unique choice for vegetarians. Fresh vegetables and a bit of grated cheese are the only other ingredients you'll need to produce this satisfying entree that's totally scrumptious and super quick to make.

Ingredients

  • spaghetti

    mixed vegetables
    (Zucchini, red pepper, tomatoes, fennel)

    pasteurized eggs

    grated parmesan

    romaine lettuce

    grape tomatoes

  • shaved parmesan

    Caesar salad dressing
    (House mayonnaise (canola oil, pasteurized egg yolks, lemon juice, red wine vinegar, salt), Parmesan, lemon juice, garlic, salt)

    sourdough croutons

    sliced onions

Getting Your Kids Involved:

Kids can help make the salad and whisk the eggs.

Encouraging Picky Eaters:

For diners who prefer plain pasta, you can offer the sautéed vegetables as a side dish instead of in the pasta.

Instructions

1Step One

Bring a large pot of water to a boil over high heat. Halve the tomatoes lengthwise and place along with the lettuce into a large bowl. Sprinkle the shredded Parmesan over the top of the salad and toss together. When the water comes to a boil, season lightly with salt, add the spaghetti, and cook until al dente, about 7-10 minutes. 

2Step Two

While the spaghetti is cooking, coat the bottom of a medium skillet and place over medium heat. Caramelize the onions for 5-7 minutes, or until they are light brown in color. Place the mixed vegetables into a medium skillet and cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, for 4-5 minutes or until warmed through. Drain the spaghetti and return it to the pot. Drizzle some olive oil on top and toss to coat. Stir the vegetables into the cooked pasta. 

3Step Three

Place the eggs into a bowl and whisk well.  Stir the eggs into the pasta, followed by half of the grated Parmesan cheese and mix until the pasta is well coated. Cook the pasta over low-medium heat for 2-3 minutes, stirring constantly and scraping the egg off the bottom of the pan, until the eggs are cooked through, about 3-5 minutes.

4Step Four

Pour the Caesar dressing over the salad and toss to coat evenly. Sprinkle the croutons over the top. Sprinkle the rest of the grated Parmesan on top of the pasta. Serve the Pasta Mama with the Caesar salad on the side. Enjoy!

Tips

  • Drizzling a bit of olive oil over the pasta after it cooks prevents it from sticking.
