Velvety Scrambled Egg Pasta with Cheese & Chives

Sharing is caring!


Pasta is a favorite at home and Miss P will have it for breakfast, lunch or dinner. I especially like this dish for its really quick and a healthier take on the standard Mac & Cheese.

It’s so easy to open a packet of ready to cook cheese pasta that kids love!  My kid likes it, but there’s nothing real in that box.  I hate feeding it to my kid and I dare say that you hate it too.

But I can guarantee you will love this quick version that’s filled with extra goodness.

  2. Once the water starts boiling add the macaroni pasta to it & cover with a lid.
  3. While the pasta cooks, melt the butter in a skillet or pot large enough to hold the pasta when it’s done.
  4. Add the chopped onions & garlic and saute till light brown.
  5. Break the eggs and mix with the onions.
  6. Add the milk slowly, followed by  salt , Italian seasoning, chilli flakes, and pepper.
  7. Stir continuously on a low to medium flame until the eggs are scrambled and cooked.
  8. Stir in the cheese and whisk until smooth and melted. reduce the heat.
  9. When the pasta is completely cooked, drain it and add to the sauce.
  10. Garnish with salt, pepper & freshly cut chives.


If you are packing this as a school lunch, don’t add the whole cheese to the pan. Sprinkle some later directly in the lunch box.
Add in some red & green pepper for color, or other veggies like broccoli and chopped chicken and it’s a one-dish meal even. As long as mac and cheese is a part of my life, there’s nothing but goodness. And when it’s our cheesy scrambled egg pasta, well then, I’m just in heaven.
