These Spaghetti cupcakes will give a little twist to the usual version, they’re perfect for kids so they don’t mess around and I’m sure some grown-ups will thank me for this too. They’re also completely vegetarian and can easily become a regular meatless Monday recipe. —The Petite Cook

Ingredients

  • 250 grams

    good quality spaghetti

  • 1 cup

    canned, peeled tomatoes, juices and seeds removed

  • a handfuls

    baby basil leaves

  • a handfuls

    grated Parmesan cheese

  • 1 teaspoon

    minced garlic
Directions

  1. Heat a large frying pan over medium heat, and drizzle with extravirgin olive oil. Add the tomatoes and garlic into the pan and stir fry over high heat for about 2 min.
  2. Add few basil leaves and season with salt and pepper. Slightly cover with a lid and cook over low heat for about 20 min. Pour a little water through out cooking time if the sauce is getting too dry.
  3. In the meantime cook your spaghetti. Add them into a pot of salted boiling water and cook for about 10 min for al dente ( see package cooking time instructions).
    Drain the spaghetti and add them into the sauce pan. Add the remaining basil leaves and drizzle with a little olive oil.
  4. Stir fry for a minute to allow all the ingredients to mix together.
    When the pasta is ready, form small cupcakes by rolling a little amount of spaghetti with a fork, just as you would do to eat them.
  5. Arrange the spaghetti nest into muffin tins and bake for 5 mins in a preheated oven to 360F/190C.
    Sprinkle with Parmesan shavings and freshly cracked black pepper. Decorate with extra basil leaves and serve. Enjoy!
