Onion, Garlic, Eggs, and Pasta Recipe – The Perfect Italian Peasant Dish!
If there one dish we love its Italian Peasant Dishes. This is one of our personal favorite pasta recipes for years now.
That being said, Onion, Garlic, Eggs, and Pasta is one of our favorites. Be sure to see why and how easy it is to make – and inexpensive too!
A Pasta Backstory
I was raised on Italian food and when I got married, my MIL taught me how delicious, easy and inexpensive peasant dishes were to make.
And that’s where they became a staple in our meal planning. Peasant dishes are the Italian equivalent of what one might call Peasant Food in English – In Italian, it is Cucina Povera, i.e. poor (or frugal) cooking.
Yes, they are inexpensive to make but don’t let that fool you – you will find they are served in high-end Italian restaurants all over and translated into costly menu items.
Today, I’d like to show you how to create one of these peasant dishes that are perfect for any occasion and a real crowd-pleaser – even the kids love it!
Onion, Garlic, Eggs, and Pasta Recipe
- 1 pound pasta
- 6 – 8 large eggs beaten
- 1 cup of olive oil
- 4 tablespoon freshly grated Parmesan cheese
- salt and pepper to taste
- Parsley and red pepper to taste
- Fry eggs, onions, garlic, and seasoning together
- break up the eggs while in the frying pan after they are cooked
- Cook pasta
- When pasta is almost done, drain well
- Put pasta in frying pan with eggs and toss for about a minute
- Put in a large bowl and plate
Be sure to drain the extra oil before adding it to your pasta. You can leave a little bit in for taste.
I hope you get to try this delicious and easy meal. It’s really wallet-friendly and everyone loves it!

This looks so delicious that you had me at the first photo! I love all Italian food and this would be an easy dish to make (particularly for a non-cook like me!) Thanks for sharing this recipe, Carolann. We’ll definitely be having this for dinner sometime soon!
This is all my favorite things combined. If only I can sneak the onions past the nine-year-old – – wish me luck :-)
Love. Must try. Very soon. Like, this week. Oh yeah! I love one dish meals.
This looks delicious! I can’t wait to give it a try. It looks like a good breakfast meal too!
This is a staple and an all time favorite dish at our house. It was my kids and grandkids first real ‘people’ food meal. I sometimes add pepperoni, ham or bacon to it.
Saw the picture and was already hooked! Looks so easy you know I’m going to try it! Thanks for the share. Yummm!
I love peasant food no matter its origin. This looks like a dish I could come to include as a staple.
This dish is quite unlike any I have seen before. Super unusual. I would have to try it to see if I like it, but I want to try it.
I must remind myself NOT to read any of your yummy recipes when I am hungry…because now I’m REALLY hungry. This looks amazing!
I never ever considered combining eggs and pasta, but this sounds delicious. Great idea that uses ingredients I always have on hand. Thank you!!
Ooh, that looks delicious! If that’s how peasants eat, I’m happy to be one :)
A perfect dish for the coming cooler evenings.
Like a few others, I never thought to use pasta and eggs together in this way plus never heard of peasant meals. I have all the ingredients on hand so will try it for sure. It looks delicious.

Hi Carla, lol yes it’s funny how little don’t like onions. I think it’s a texture thing. You can substitute the onions for a veggie too. We do that and add peas or carrots they are so good. Thanks much and have a great weekend!
