Meatless Monday: Fried Egg, Chilli and Tomato Spaghetti
I actually prefer the lightness of spaghettini (angel hair spaghetti) in this dish, but if you like your pasta slightly thicker, feel free to use traditional spaghetti. Chilli flakes can be substituted by 1 tbsp Sambal Oelek paste or a finely chopped red long chilli. I used organic cherry tomatoes and eggs.
For the spaghetti:
- 120 g dry spaghetti pasta
- 2 eggs
- 12 cherry tomatoes cut in half
- 1-2 tsp hot chilli flakes
- 2 tbsp oil
To serve (optional):
- salad greens
- shaved parmesan cheese
In the meantime, prepare your eggs and tomatoes.
Heat oil in a medium fry pan over high heat.
Crack in eggs, lower heat to medium and fry, sunny side up until the whites are set.
Remove from pan and slice into strips.
Return pan to heat and add cherry tomatoes, then using a pair of tongs, trasfer cooked pasta into the pan, add chilli flakes and stir-fry for another minute.
Add shredded eggs and mix.
To serve: divide spaghetti between 2 bowls.
