The Three in One Muffin

When you can't pick between having a muffin, omelet, or a bowl of pasta, this delicious alternative will give you the best of all worlds. Perfect for a breakfast, light lunch, or dinner side, you will wish the recipe made more than six. I think that's enough said. Just go ahead and enjoy!

Broccoli-Provolone-Pasta Muffins
Broccoli-Provolone-Pasta Muffins
makes 6
½ tsp garlic powder
¼ tsp salt
3 cups frozen broccoli
2 ounces dry angel hair pasta
2 ounces shredded provolone cheese
2 eggs

Cover the broccoli with water and microwave for 5-6 minutes. Drain and set it aside to cool. Break the strands of pasta into 3 evenly long pieces. Cover them with water in a microwave safe container, microwave 5 minutes, and drain. Blend the cooled broccoli together with the salt, garlic, and eggs. Stir in the cheese and pasta. Spray 6 muffin holes with oil and divide the mixture in between them. Bake at 400 degrees for 25 minutes.

This is a really cute craft idea for preschool and early school aged children. Just wrap some construction paper around an oatmeal box, top with a different colored "tower" shape, and print off pictures of Rapunzel looking out of her window. Let the kids color the pictures in and glue them onto their towers. For a little boy, use a rectangular box wrapped in construction paper with a piece of construction paper folded in half for the roof. Let them glue on pictures of firefighters or whatever you can think of.
