The mini series: baked Spaghettini pasta

It’s baking time again! This time my measurements were kinda off so instead of 24 I made 48!! mini pies. That’s a good thing if you’re having a party, but not so good if you are trying make 24 only.
It is really difficult to measure everything exact so you have 24 pieces, but now I know for next time.

I used:
- one cup of Spaghettini
- 75 gram bacon cut in small pieces
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 2 big tablespoons of quark
- 2 eggs
- 3 tablespoons of milk
- 1 teaspoon of garlic powder
- fresh grounded pepper
- a bit of parsley
- some bread crumbs
- 2 tablespoons of grated cheese
You might have not heard of spaghettini and to be honest I think it is a name someone came up with, but they are slightly thicker then spaghetti and only 2 cm long. They were small enough to fit in the molds, so if you have orzo pasta that would work as well. As long as they fit in the molds you’re good. I boiled about one cup in some salted water.
Then I mixed the quark, eggs, milk, garlic powder, pepper and olive oil together.
I used a scissor to cut the bacon.
And the parsley...
And mixed everything together.
After the spaghettini went in I thought some cheese would taste good also so I added some grated cheese.
I preheated the oven on 180C degrees and while waiting I greased the molds with some olive oil and filled the them with the pasta mixture.
I stuffed them as much as I could.
To give it extra crunch I added some bread crumbs on top.
After they were in the oven for about 25-30 minutes I took them out. The top was nice and crunchy.
And this was only the first batch….
They were very interesting and maybe next time I would add some extra salt or some more bacon. I didn’t know how salt the bacon would make them so I didn’t add extra. With some more cheese and bacon it would make a great party snack. Imagine dipping them in ketchup!
