Total Time: 1 hour
Recipe by: Rae


7 large, Egg
1/2 cup Parmesan, shredded
3 TBSP Oil - Extra Virgin Olive
2 TBSP Parsley, fresh, chopped
1/2 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Pepper
1 lb Sweet Italian Sausage, lightly crumbled
2 cloves Garlic
3 cups water
6 oz Angel Hair Pasta, uncooked, snapped in half
1/2 tsp Salt
2 tsp Cooking oil


1. Combine the egg, Parmesan, EVOO, parsley, salt, and pepper in a larger bowl. Beat well with a whisk and set aside.

2. In a 12 inch non-stick pan brown the sausage for 3 1/2 minutes, it will be only partly cooked, add the garlic and cook for 2 more minutes.

3. Add the sausage to the bowl with the egg mix and return the pan to the burner. Place over high heat and add the water, angel hair, salt and cooking oil. Bring to a boil.

4. Stirring often simmer on high until all the water is absorbed and you begin to hear sizzling. Turn heat to medium.

5. Do NOT STIR. You are now creating a nice golden brown crust to that pasta. Use a rubber spatula and slide it around the edges of the pasta. Swirl the pan so that it doesn't stick until golden brown, about 5-8 minutes.

6. Using the back of the spatula press the pasta out and up the edges of the pan.

7. Add the sausage/egg mixture. Cover the pan and cook 7 minutes on medium or until the eggs have set.

8. Flip the omelette: Turn off heat. Slide the spatula around the sides an loosen. Cover with and inverted plate and turn over. Place the pan on the stove and slide the omelette back into the pan.

9. Cover and let sit 5 minutes to finish cooking.

10. Slide on to a cutting board and cut into 8 pieces. Serve hot or refrigerate and serve chilled.


* This recipe comes from an episode of America's Test Kitchen. It originally called for 3 TBSP chopped cherry peppers to be added to the egg mixture. I think this would be a great addition (we didn't have any)so add those if you can find them. Yum!

**Make sure you use a non-stick pan. Any other pan will probably end in a burnt mess.
