  • Ingredients for 8 pieces:

Preheat the oven to 200 C.

Cook spaghetti in salted water for 5 minutes, then drain and put it in a bowl with a large spoonful of oil and stir well so that it does not stick. Let it cool.

Tip: pasta does not have to be cooked completely since it will have a second cooking in the oven afterwards.

Meantime, dice tomatoes, Scamorza and pancetta.
Beat the eggs in a bowl, add pancetta, tomatoes and diced Scamorza, grated Parmigiano, salt, pepper, nutmeg and mix well.

Add everything to the spaghetti and stir.

Grease ramekins on the bottom and edges and add a sprinkle of breadcrumbs, fill them with the mixture. Sprinkle on top with some grated Parmigiano so that it will make a crunchy crust.

Bake in a preheated oven to 200°C for about 15-20 minutes.
