When it comes to the breakfast game, pasta is a seriously underrated player—spaghetti included.
Though we love to enjoy the Italian noodles for lunch, dinner, and sometimes even in cone form, we haven’t sufficiently explored them as a breakfast option. Well, spaghetti is calling, my friend, and it’s telling you, in a Drake voice, “I want egg on me, want a lotta egg on me! Got a lotta carbs, so please strain me for my energy!” (It likes cheese as well).
Spoon University‘s Phoebe Melnick knows this, so she’s giving breakfast pasta the attention it deserves with a quick recipe for Bacon, Egg, and Cheese Spaghetti. Check out the instructions below and start your morning in the best pastable way.
