Scale
  • 8 ounces whole wheat spaghetti
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 3/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese, divided
  • 5 ounce can low-sodium pizza sauce
  • 15 ounce can no-salt added beans (Pinto, Cannellini or Great Northern beans)
  • 1 cup frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry OR 1 cup chopped cooked mushrooms

  1. Cook spaghetti according to package instructions. Drain and add to large bowl. Add beaten eggs and 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese and mix until spaghetti is evenly coated.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  3. Coat a 12-cup muffin tin with cooking spray. Evenly divide spaghetti among muffin cups pressing down into each cup.
