  2. Heat olive oil in pan. Toss in chopped tomatoes and chopped onions and cover for 2 minutes until flavours come out and slightly brown. (if substituting vegetables this is where you would add them instead of the tomatoes).
  3. Turn on oven in the meantime, to 180 degrees.
  4. Toss in pasta and mix thoroughly. Add eggs and once cooked through, add grated cheese, grated onion, salt, pepper sauce, parsley and half can evaporated milk or enough so that the mixture isn’t dry. Switch off once all ingredients are properly mixed.
  5. Fit the cup cake baking tray with silicon cases and spoon enough of the pasta mixture into each casing. Put in the oven and bake for at least 15 minutes or until slightly brown on top.
