Ingredients

6 / 300 g Naturegg Nature’s Best shell eggs (or Egg Creations Whole Eggs Original, well shaken)
1 3/4 cup / 425 ml 2% milk
1/4 cup / 50 ml finely grated Parmesan cheese
3 cloves of garlic, minced
3 cup / 750 ml chopped arugula
2 cup / 500 ml cooked, whole-wheat spaghetti
1 cup / 250 ml drained, no added salt canned diced tomatoes
1 cup / 250 ml shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese, divided
1/2 cup / 125 ml drained artichoke hearts, rinsed and chopped
1/4 tsp / 1 ml each salt and pepper (optional)
Chopped fresh basil leaves (optional)

Directions

  1. Lightly coat a 9-inch (23 cm) deep-dish, microwave-safe pie plate with nonstick cooking spray.

  2. In the pie plate, break eggs and whisk with the milk, Parmesan cheese and garlic until well-blended; stir in the arugula, spaghetti, tomatoes, 3/4 cup (175 mL) mozzarella cheese, the artichoke hearts and salt and pepper (if using). Spread out evenly in the prepared pie plate. Sprinkle with the remaining mozzarella cheese.
