Pin it


1/2 pound whole wheat spaghetti
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
8 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 egg yolk
1/2 cup sundried tomatoes, softened in warm water 5 minutes and sliced thin
2 tablespoons vegetable stock
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1 tablespoon minced parsley


1. Prepare pasta according to package directions, cutting back 2 minutes on cooking time. Drain.

2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, warm oil over medium-low heat. Add garlic and red pepper flakes. Saute until mixture begins to sizzle; remove from heat and set aside.

3. In a small bowl, whisk together egg yolk, tomatoes, stock, and Parmesan cheese.

4. Return drained pasta to pot over medium-low heat. Add egg mixture and toss. Add garlic mixture and salt; toss again. Cook 2 minutes or until sauce thickens and starts to stick to pasta. Toss with parsley just before serving.
