Spaghetti Cups

Mar 23, 2021 | Food, Main Course

Happy Wednesday everyone!!  Spring has sprung and I’m so excited.  It’s got me thinking of new spring and summer recipes and all that thinking made me wonder what to do with the leftover angel hair pasta in my refrigerator when these spaghetti cups popped into my head.  I already had large cupcake tins sitting out because I was going to make cupcakes and then it dawned on me…why not use them a different way.  I had very rich, garlicky, homemade fettuccine Alfredo sauce and a sweet homemade marinara sauce leftover from another dinner and didn’t want to just throw it all away.
My sauce is a combination of 1 jar of Classica Four Cheese, fresh oregano, parsley, and basil with a dash of sugar, garlic salt, and 1 sliver of butter

My first thought was to combine the fettuccine and marinara together to create a Pomodoro sauce but decided to use the white on the bottom and red on top.  I’m so glad I decided not to do that.  This allowed me to taste all the flavors of this dish at different times.  First the sweet read sauce to the buttery, garlicky, cheesy goodness of the fettuccini.  I sometimes add sautéed spinach to my fettuccine sauce but decided to lay a bed of spinach on my plate and piled on a pasta cup.

I first filled the bottom about half an inch high with fettuccini sauce, piled it high with angel hair pasta, added my marinara and then topped with a slice of heavenly fresh mozzarella cheese.  It went into the oven at 350 degrees for 15 minutes and then broiled on high for 2 minutes.  Add more cheese by sprinkling some grated parmesan and you have created another dinner from your previous nights leftovers!  Great for lunches as well and the perfect size for someone not wanting to over do it.  

Enjoy!

    It’s so boring making the same old meals all the time…this is a fun alternative! Both sauces are also a nice twist 😋

      Thank you! I wasn’t sure how they would turn out but ended up tasting delicious! They are the perfect size for a lunch or if someone is watching their calorie intake.

      You are so welcome! Let me know if you make this and how it turned out! Another option would be to mix the pasta and sauce together before adding to the cupcake pan but I chose to do the ingredients separate.
