Ingredients

  • 2 cups cooked whole-wheat spaghetti
  • 1/2 cup Cauliflower Puree
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • Coarse salt
  • 1/4 cup flaxseed meal
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 6 large eggs

Directions

  1. In a medium bowl, mix together spaghetti, cauliflower puree, cheese, cornstarch, salt, and flaxseed.

  2. Set a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add 1/2 teaspoon canola oil. Take one sixth of the pasta and form into an "O" shape, leaving a 2 1/2-inch opening in the center. Cook until brown, 2 to 3 minutes.

  3. Carefully turn spaghetti mixture over and crack 1 egg into the center of the "O," taking care not to break the yolk. Cover and cook until egg is set and cooked to desired degree of doneness, 2 to 3 minutes more.

  4. Keep warm and repeat process with remaining pasta mixture and eggs. Sprinkle with salt before serving.
