We are big fans of pasta, and would both eat it like every night, but we all know you can’t really do that. So we are also big fans of 50/50 spaghetti and zucchini. It’s really great for a lighter option but you still to get to eat pasta. Yay! We made this Seared Salmon dish a while back with 50/50 noodles that is really good. Today, we made Cheesy 50/50 Spaghetti and Zucchini Bake with Eggs. Love these baked eggs in this to give it a little extra something so you get full. Enjoy :)
