  • In a small (7- to 8-inch) broiler-proof nonstick skillet, heat 1 teaspoon olive oil over medium-low heat. Pour in spaghetti mixture; cook until top is almost set, 5 to 7 minutes. Transfer to broiler, placing pan 4 inches from heat source; cook until set, about 1 minute.

Mesclun salad
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice, 2 teaspoons olive oil, and 1/2 teaspoon coarse salt. Add 2 cups packed mesclun and 1 scallion, thinly sliced; toss to combine.

Cook's Notes

For something a little different, try whole-wheat or spinach pasta. Also, Jarlsberg cheese is available in both reduced-fat and regular versions; either works well in this recipe.
