You may know the traditional Italian dish, “Eggs In Purgatory”, where eggs are cracked and cooked in tomato sauce. I wanted to take that one step further and cook the eggs in not just tomato sauce, but pasta in tomato sauce! The great thing about this dish is using leftover pasta, which is one less step I have to take!

     I had my daughter’s birthday party and had an overflow of leftovers! With all 100 pounds of pasta in my fridge, I thought there had to be a different way to eat this! And voila! The “Eggs In Pasta-Tory” was born! With Easter and Passover right around the corner, I thought this would be a great brunch dish!

FUN FACT: Most of us know that eggs contain a high amount of protein, but did you know that more than half of the protein is actually found in the egg white! So if you decide to eliminate the yolk and have an egg white omelette, you will still get a great amount of protein! Lets not forget the Vitamin B2 and Vitamin D too!

  3. Carefully crack your egg into a separate bowl first to ensure it stays intact and no shell gets into the egg. Then gently pour that on top of each pasta cup.
