9 Eggs Beaten

1 Lb. Spaghetti


Parmesan Cheese


Cook spaghetti al dente! Drain off water leaving

the pasta moist but not too wet. Take the 9 beaten

eggs and add a generous amount of parmesan

cheese and mix thoroughly in the same pot the

spaghetti was cooked in. (Pot & pasta MUST NOT

be too hot, almost cool/room temp) On the stove

heat enough oil to cover the bottom of a

medium / large pan, can be of any shape to

a medium heat. Place the entire mixture into

the heated oil. Eggs should start to cook

immediately. Using a fork or a spatula look

underneath to see when the pasta is cooked

to a golden brown. When this happens place

a plate one the pan and flip the pasta on to it.

Add a little more oil to the pan and place the pasta

back into it. Again checking for when the underside

is golden brown. Remove from pan and place on a

large serving plate. Let the "pie" sit for at least

15 minutes for everything to settle into place.

Cut into pieces and enjoy pasta on the go!

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
O.K. TRUTH - This is Rose's recipe handed

down to her from her Mom Clara....BUT she

did not have this in the book! I am credited on

this because this is what I was taught & it is

exactly how I cook it..Per Mom's instructions!

TIP: If you let this set overnight in the fridge

& reheat the next day the flavor is MORE

intense, I have started playing with the recipe

and adding sautéed sliced garlic to mine.

2nd TRUTH - The first time I attempted this I

ended up with a huge mess of just pasta &

partially cooked eggs!!

3rd TRUTH - Me: Mom why do we use 9 eggs?

why not 10 or 12?

Rose: Cause that's what Grandma used.....

Me: Yeah but why 9?

Rose: Hey use whatever you want, but when

it doesn't come out right don't bother me!

Me: Uh, o.k. thanks Mom.....LOL
