What's For Dinner: Baked Eggs, Baked Pasta And Butter Cookies

What's for dinner: baked eggs, pasta and butter cookies

Not feeling inspired by your usual dishes? Here's what's for dinner.

Today's forecast: partly cloudy with a chance of cookies. We're kicking off Baking Month here at Tasting Table today, and it all begins with helpings of creamy eggs and cheese-stuffed pasta shells, plus a buttery cookie or two to round everything out.

① Appetizer: Baked Eggs with Spinach and Leeks

After you break through the spinach-laced surface for the first bite, you'll surely never give green eggs a bad rap again. It's home in any brunch spread, but with all the greens, these jiggly baked eggs are practically a salad.

② Main Course: Skillet-Baked Pasta with Five Cheeses

There are enough cheeses to form a basketball team in this satisfying pasta. Emily and Matt Hyland, the chefs behind these baked shells, may be known for their excellent pizza at Emily in Brooklyn, but they clearly know their way around pasta as well.

③ Dessert: Gooey Butter Cookies

Consider Baking Month your invitation to eat dessert every day. Cream cheese gives Gerard Craft's kid-approved cookies an ultra-soft texture, while a double dusting of confectioners' sugar lends a wintery snow-kissed look.
