Comments: Spinach and Mushroom Spaghetti Cups


Great recipe, Barrett. It's a lot more fun that the usual (boring but tasty) pasta dinner.

What an interesting little recipe! I never would have thought to put pasta in muffin tins like that. I bet they are crunchy and delicious!

Barrett - This is such a great idea. I love how many different things you could end up with this.

Great idea, and certainly a crowdpleaser, but wouldn't it help for the pasta not too dry out too much to toss atleast some of the prepared sauce /veggies with the pasta before transferring to the cupcake tin?

Nico, you could try adding sauce to the pasta, but my goal was to dry the pasta out so it will hold its shape. If the spaghetti is too moist it'll just collapse when you pop them out of the cups.

Mmmmm!!! That looks GOOD! Thanks for the idea, Barrett.


I made these last night and they were amazing. All that tried it loved it. I altered your recipe a tiny bit, though.. I used Portobello Mushrooms, added calmatta olives to the spaghetti sauce, and pressed shrimp into the centers.

Wow that looks awesome! I will try it out and let you know how it was!

Question regarding spaghetti cups recipe. How much spaghetti equals 6 oz.? 1/2 - 3/4 package? Hard to know how to measure this. Kindly advise as I would love to try this.

Cindy, if you buy a one pound package of spaghetti, 6 oz. is just over a third of a package. 6 oz. = .375 of a pound according to my converter. That said, if you err a bit one way or the other, I'm sure it will work fine.

Good luck!
