Description

Baked Spaghetti Cups make a fun, tasty, and customizable dinner great for kids and adults! Make them your own with your favorite cheese, veggies or even add meatballs! This recipe makes a lot, but it can easily be halved to fill just one muffin tin (use two eggs).


Ingredients

Units Scale
  • 1 16oz box Barilla spaghetti
  • 1 20oz jar Vero Gusto by Barilla Tomato Basil Pasta Sauce
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup fresh spinach, chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups grated parmesan cheese, divided
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/3 cup whipped cream cheese

Instructions

  1. Cook spaghetti in a large pot of salted water until al dente. Drain and set aside to cool.
  2. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Grease two muffin tins with cooking spray and set aside.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together eggs and cream cheese until very well-combined. Once pasta is cool, add to bowl and use tongs to combine with egg mixture. Add spinach, 1 cup of the parmesan, and all of the mozzarella.
  4. Divide pasta mixture evenly into muffin tin. (I like to twirl a clump of the pasta around my finger to form nests that fit into the cups.) Top each cup with about 2 tbsp sauce and a sprinkle parmesan. Bake for about 15 minutes.
  5. Let cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes before gently removing. Serve warm with extra sauce!

Notes

*If you use any other veggies like mushrooms or peppers, sauté them prior to adding so the pasta isn't too watery.
