Ingredients for Baked Pasta Bites

  • cooked penne pasta
  • eggs
  • half-moon slices of zucchini
  • shredded Colby-Jack cheese
  • teaspoon garlic powder
  • grated Parmesan cheese
  • crumbled feta cheese

How to Make Three Cheese Muffin Tin Pasta Bites

In a medium bowl, whisk eggs for 1 minute. Stir in Colby-Jack cheese and garlic powder. Add pasta and veggies and stir to coat noodles in mixture. Add Parmesan and stir again to coat fully.

In a 12-count muffin tin sprayed with non-stick cooking spray, divide the mixture equally among each muffin tin. Sprinkle the top of each with a teaspoon of crumbled feta

Bake for 18-20 minutes at 350°, until fully cooked through but not overdone. Remove and let cool 5 minutes. Remove pasta from muffin tins (if needed, take a butter knife along the edges to loosen the pasta–it should remove easily), and serve!

Take advantage of sales on pasta, cheese, and eggs at Safeway this week to make these delicious muffin tin pasta bites.  You can use yellow squash or zucchini or a mix of both to add veggies and nutrients to the baked pasta bites.

  1. 4 stars
    Made two batches this weekend – one following recipe exactly, and one substituting carrots for pasta. Everyone in household preferred the pasta variety – including me.

    1. Thanks for your review. I also made it over the weekend and made too much pasta for the egg and cheese mixture so I ended up putting the extra in a baking dish and the family preferred the baking dish pasta to the muffin tin pasta even though it was the same recipe in both! The key is to not overfill the muffin tins!

  2. Thanks for the recipe! I’m going to try a modified version (substituting carrots for the pasta to cut carbs some and add some color).
