baked pasta muffins recipe yields a great snack for kids. They go great as breakfast or as an after school snack. Not only kids, everyone will like them.
To make the baked pasta muffins, any vegetables of your choice can be used. I have also used crumbled corn flakes to give a crust to the muffin top. Oats or rice crispies can be used as well.
These muffins are layered with cooked pasta at the bottom layer, next layer is cheese which helps to bind the bottom and top layer ingredients.
For the top layer I have used chopped veggies and then finished off with crumbled cornflakes.
You can play around with whatever ingredients you think will go good to make these baked pasta muffins.
