RECIPE: Sol's Angel Hair Flan

cookingrvcSeptember 18, 2007


Hi! I was scanning the 'what's for dinner' thread and saw your flan. Can you tell me how you prepare it?

I make something that looks similar (although I do it stove top)...we always called it spaghetti pie and make it with pasta, eggs, grating cheese, and lots of pepper.

Thanks, Sue

You might want to ask at the Cooking Forum. I've never seen it here.

Someone was kind enough to email Sol's recipe to me. It sounds great.

Angel Hair Flan

1 cup whipping cream
3 large eggs
1 teaspoon minced, fresh thyme or pinch of dried thyme.
½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
1½ cups freshly grated Pecorino cheese
3 ounces angel hair pasta, cooked

Butter 6 - ½ cup ramekins. Whisk first four ingredients. Season generously with S & P. Stir in 1 cup Pecorino. Divide freshly cooked pasta evenly among prepared ramekins. Pour egg mixture over pasta to the very top of ramekins. Sprinkle flans with remaining ½ cup Pecorino cheese. Bake in a 350°F oven, until flans are set and golden brown, 20-25 minutes.
Run a knife around sides of ramekins to loosen. Unmold and serve. These flans will puff up just like a soufflé and once removed from the oven, will fall slightly, just like a soufflé ... but no one will care. ;-)
