Chef Silvio’s Pizza Rustica
- 3 large eggs, lightly beaten
- 2/3 cup grated parmigiana cheese
- 1/3 cup heavy cream
- 1 tablespoon chopped fresh Italian parsley
- Salt and freshly ground pepper
- 12 ounces cooked spaghetti, cold
- 2 tablespoons butter
- About ½ cup plain dry bread crumbs
In a bowl, beat the eggs, cheese, cream, parsley, and salt and pepper to taste until well combined. Stir in the spaghetti, then set aside. Place the butter in a non-stick baking pan or a deep pie tin, melt the butter in a 450-degree oven, and spread over the pan bottom. Pour the spaghetti mixture into the buttered pan, spread evenly, and sprinkle lightly with bread crumbs for color. Bake at 450-degrees for approximately 8 to 10 minutes, or until it is firm and golden. Cut into as many pieces as you like. Serve hot or refrigerate and serve cold over the next few days. Either way is delicious!
Make a big salad and your meal is complete!
