Let’s talk breakfast. My favorite meal of the day. Allow me to introduce you to the breakfast Squish and I have been enjoying this week. I’d describe it as the love child that would result if mac and cheese and a frittata had a baby.
Are you thinking “pasta for breakfast?!” Sounds crazy, right? I assure you it’s not. This pasta bake is packed with protein, veggies and whole grains – a winning breakfast in my book, perfect for fueling your busy day. Squish is a noodle lover like his mama and I love pairing them with veggies. Lately he’s started to reject some of the veggies I give him, but I’ve noticed if they’re paired with things he loves like meat and noodles in a casserole type dish, he’s much more likely to eat them. I’m also making it my mission to try to get him loves of veggies throughout the day, and that includes breakfast!
With the holidays coming up, it’s also worth noting that it can be mostly assembled the night before if you want to bake it to feed your overnight guests! Or you can bake it on the weekend and simply slice and reheat throughout the week for a quick breakfast option like we’ve been doing this week.
You can easily customize this pasta bake by using your favorite pasta, your favorite veggies and whatever kind of sausage you like (or even some leftover chicken or pork). I topped mine with avocado and salsa…because I love my eggs with salsa.
So here’s how you make it:
Please be sure to read the notes in the recipe for instructions to prepare ahead of time!
