10 Oz Spaghetti
1/2 Cup, shredded Cheddar Cheese
1 Cup, (not packed) Cottage Cheese
1 Tbsp Olive Oil
1 Tsp Garlic Salt
1 Tsp Pepper
1 Tsp Tumeric
1/4 Tsp Paprika
1/4 Cup Parmesan Cheese


Preheat oven to 425 degrees F with the rack in the center of the oven.

Lightly spray muffin tins.

Cook pasta according to package directions, reserve 1/2 cup of cooking liquid.

Be sure not to break spaghetti while cooking so you can twirl it into nests.

Combine cottage cheese and cheddar cheese in a bowl.

Toss cooked pasta with a splash of olive oil, all spices and seasonings.

Add some of the reserved cooking liquid if you need to.

Mix with cheese mixture.

Reserve a bit of cheese to top each nest.

Twirl spaghetti with a fork and add to muffin tins, create nest shapes.

Top each nest with a bit of the cottage cheese mixture.

Bake for about 10 minutes.

The tops of your nests will be lightly browned and a bit crispy.

Let cool for a few minutes.

Gently loosen spaghetti nests from muffin tins with a spatula and serve.

Top with parmesan and dried basil or parsley, if desired.
