Speaking of nests, I've been getting back into cooking again (finally! enough peace in my life to be inspired to cook well and look to recipes for fun ideas)--and I made these spaghetti nests last night. They were easy and fun to eat--they had more texture than just regular spaghetti.
Directions: 1a. make spaghetti as normal. then put them in oiled muffin tins with a depression in the center.
1b. chop a small onion and half a zucchini (or a whole small one) and lightly fry them. add enough pasta sauce just so that they have a light coating of red.
2. put the veggie stuff in the 'nests'.
3. put muffin tin in a preheated 400 degree oven for ~35 mins. broil for 2 minutes at the end.
4. Sprinkle parmesan/reggiano on top. Let the nests cool in the tin so that they retain their shape.
