Breakfast Spaghetti for Dinner

Breakfast Spaghetti for Dinner

This is something my mom would make when I was a little girl.  I don’t remember having it often, so it seemed like a special occasion when we did.  It’s so easy and quick that you could make it all the time – for breakfast or for dinner.  It’s a great for using up leftover ham from Easter, Christmas or Thanksgiving.

Start by boiling water and cooking 1 pkg of spaghetti, angel hair or linguini.  Next dice a cup and a half of ham.  You could also use bacon, sausage or pancetta which is italian bacon.  Sauté the ham in a large skillet or wok.

Grate 3/4 – 1 cup of parmesan cheese.  I have been known to use the shaker cheese in a pinch.  Shhhh!  Don’t tell anyone.

Whisk 5 eggs with a splash of milk or half and half.  Add to ham in the skillet and stir.  Drain your pasta, and when egg is mostly scrambled add the pasta to the skillet and combine well.  Add 3/4 cup of the cheese and stir.
