Parents often tell me their child won’t eat egg. The great thing about eggs is they are SO versatile. Here is a recipe that incorporates egg into a child favorite (pasta) AND it’s got veggies as well. Save or pin this recipe!

What you need:

  • 1/2 pk of pasta of choice (I like linguine)
  • 1/2 jar of marinated artichoke hearts (chopped)
  • 1tbsp olive oil
  • 2 x 10 oz of fresh cherry or grape tomatoes (halved)
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp garlic, 1 tsp onion flakes, 1 tsp dried parsley (optional chili flakes), pepper to taste

What to do:

  1. Cook the pasta according to directions for al-dente
  2. Slice the cherry or grape tomatoes in half longways
  3. Add the tomatoes to a hot, large skillet with 1tbsp olive oil
  4. Add spices, let cook and blister for 3-5 minutes, stir, reduce heat to medium
  5. Add the chopped artichokes
  6. Drain the pasta and add to the skillet
  7. Beat the 2 eggs in a bowl and mix in the cheese
  8. Add the egg/cheese mix to the skillet and mix together to coat, continue until the egg is cooked
  9. Serve with extra cheese if desired
