This is a great way to use up leftover pasta - you can use any type, whether it's tomato or cream based. It's kid friendly, and you can use it as an opportunity to add hidden vegetables, like grated carrot and zucchini. You can also freeze it - it reheats well in both the oven and microwave.

Leftover pasta and sauce mixed together
1egg per 3 packed cups of pasta(see notes)
Grated melting cheese
Preheat oven to 350F/180C.
Mix the egg and pasta together.
Spray muffin tins with oil, then pack tightly with pasta. If you don't pack the pasta in, it will fall apart.
Bake until the pasta goes crunchy and golden on top - around 5 to 8 minutes.
Remove from oven and sprinkle on cheese, then return to oven until cheese melts.
The egg is what binds the pasta together. If you are using spaghetti, fettucine or another long pasta, then use 1 egg per 3 packed cups of pasta. If using penne or macaroni or similar, then use 1 egg per 4 packed cups of pasta.
