Egg spaghetti – A super quick, healthy and delicious scrambled egg pasta that can be whipped up under 15 minutes.

This is inspired from the vegetarian Spaghetti Aglio Olio which I shared earlier. You can make variations to this by adding some mushrooms, shrimps or even shredded chicken.

This recipe does not need any cheese, butter or sauce. While the pasta cooks, make the garlic chilli oil, scramble the eggs and then toss the boiled pasta. With in minutes, a delicious bowl of spaghetti aglio olio with egg is ready.

You will be surprised at how simple and easy it is to make this egg spaghetti. While this is delicious on its own and needs no sides. But to include more dished to your menu serve this with tomato soup or garlic cheese toast on the side.

I made this, and my flatmates liked it.
Thank you 😊

Can we replace Spaghetti with hakka noodles without taste difference? 😂
I don’t have spaghetti available. These hakka noodles I use to make chowmein at home. What do you advise?
I have eaten spaghetti before & I don’t find much difference between spaghetti and chowmein noodles 😅

5 stars
❤️❤️❤️ this dish.
Sometimes I add broccoli slaw to it and Panko breadcrumbs on top with Parmesan cheese.
So good!

5 stars
Absolutely delicious. I used linguine, topped with a little grated parmesan, threw a couple of handfuls of spinach in while the sauce was reducing, and subbed in truffle salt and salt-free butter.

Can any sort of cheese be added to this?

which brand you used
