- Cook Sorghum Spaghetti as directed on the package.Bring a large pot of water to boil and add 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Separate the pasta as you put it in the pot and stir for the first few minutes to make sure it doesn't stick together.
- (Add the shredded cabbage to the pasta while it's al dente and cook another 2-3 minutes. It's just a way of getting more veggies into your diet, and when mixed with pasta it's really difficult to tell it's not 100% pasta)
- In a large sauté pan put the chopped prosciutto and 1/4c olive oil over medium-high heat and cook until crisp. 3-4 min. Add julienned or grated carrots and stir 1-2 min add spinach, olive tapenade, garlic and pepper. Stir until completely wilted and carrots are cooked. 3-4 min. Remove from heat.
- Check your pasta during this time. Sorghum pasta takes longer to cook, but also gets sticky if it's overcooked. Reserve 1/2-1 c pasta water.
- Add the cooked drained and rinsed spaghetti and grated Romano to the prosciutto and veggies in the sauté pan plus 1/4 c olive oil and stir to coat the pasta and add the Romano cheese. If needed add pasta water so the mixture does not stick.
- Heat a skillet over medium heat with 1 Tbsp. olive oil for the eggs. Cook either one or 2 eggs per serving as appeals to you. Fried or scrambled is fine. The texture between the rest of the dish and the eggs is worth adding them.
- As the eggs are cooking, plate the pasta and then put the cooked eggs on top of the pasta. For decoration, grate a little more cheese or salt and pepper on the eggs.
- The Romano and Prosciutto are quite salty. Taste the dish first then add salt and pepper as needed.
