Ditalini pasta and eggs

Dinner on a budget! As a child, this is one of those family meals we had all the time. This is also one of the Chief's favorites. A large pot that feeds a family of four can be made for under $4.00. It is so simple to make.

Boil 2 quarts of water in a large pot
4 cloves of garlic chopped
1/4 cup of parsley chopped fine
Kosher salt and pepper to taste
3 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
7 eggs scrambled
One scallion diced (optional)
Parmesan cheese (optional)

Bring water to a boil and add pasta, garlic, parsley, salt and pepper. Cook pasta to desired tenderness then add scrambled egg and olive oil. Stir egg gently so it can stay in large chunks.

Serve hot and sprinkle scallions with parmesan cheese on top. If the pasta absorbs the liquid just add more water to make a soup consistency.

This meal can't get any easier, inexpensive and delicious.


  1. Another great recipe! Thanks Marianne... Have to give this a whirl :-)

  2. I definitely want to try this one - looks good!!!

  3. This looks delicious, but I was confused at first because I thought it was more of a pasta side than a soup. Once I saw the pot of water and egg, I had to back track on the recipe and figure it out. I LOVE pasta with egg, but I've never had it as a soup, so this would be good to try. Is it anything like egg drop soup?? Great post!
