I've been making this dish for Kenya for several months but only now did I think of putting it on weelicious. Duh!! This is an amazingly quick, easy and tasty dish. I guarantee you'll end up adding your own twist and wind up making it on a regular basis.
What could be more simple then eggs, pasta and cheese? Of course, for added flavor, color and nutrition I add the zucchini and sun dried tomatoes, but you could replace them with anything you have on hand to jazz the dish up. Even better, you can make a bunch of pasta, let it cool, add a splash of olive oil and keep it in the fridge for several days, so you can conveniently whip Pasta Wee One whenever you feel brain dead and can't think of something warm and delicious to eat for lunch or dinner. And even better, no matter what shape of pasta you have on hand, it will work perfectly.
I made this for Kenya's dinner and of course my husband took one sniff and asked if I would make it for him too. Luckily I had tons of leftover pasta and veggies in the fridge ready to go!

    I like your website. Nice, simple recipes. I never thought of mixing eggs with pasta...but sounds like a good idea.
    I also write a blog on toddler nutrition. Feel free to check it out
    There are a few recipes from my wife which may interest you.
    I am going to link to you on my blog.

    This was good but turned out a little bland. Is there anything more to add to perk this up a little?

    I think I did something wrong, but I don't know what, Mine came out really thick, and the eggs were barely visible. Maybe I mixed it together too much? Regardless, my son liked it and I'll try to make it better next time. : )
