Baked Bird's Nest

This side dish recipe is very simple. The end result looks like a bird's nest, which the kids think is cool. You could plop a few cherry tomatoes in there and call them eggs.. Or the adult version could be laying some grilled filet strips or baked salmon over the top of the nest.

1. Cook 1/2 pound - 3/4 lb of spaghetti noodles
2. Add hot noodles to a big mixing bowl. Add a little bit of olive oil to avoid sticking.
3. Add two eggs to hot noodles.
4. Add a handful of shredded Parmesan and Mozzarella cheese.
5. Mix well.
6. Grab a small handful of noodle mixture and mold into a ball and place on a baking sheet, lined with parchment paper.
7. Continue until noodle mixture is gone. Sprinkle each nest with Celtic sea salt, garlic powder and dried basil.
8. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until nest is a little golden brown and crunchy on top.
