14 Breakfast Pasta Recipes That Will Rival Your Weeknight Meals
We’re all about using pasta in creative ways. Whether we’re making inventive pasta recipes or warming up our leftovers, we’re always experimenting with the many wonders of noodles. When you get together with the girls for a movie night or dinner party, pasta is probably a no-brainer — but what about brunch? Turns out, you can make PLENTY of drool-worthy brunch dishes with noodles. All you need is a little creativity! These 14 breakfast pastas are perfect for serving at your next girls’ brunch in.
1. Fontina Spinach Artichoke Breakfast Pasta: This veg-heavy breakfast is full of tons of flavor and nutrients. But don’t worry, carnivores, it’s also sprinkled with bacon. As a bonus, it’s also super easy to prepare ahead of time and then throw in the oven about 20 minutes before eating. (via Half Baked Harvest)
2. Bacon Tomato Basil Breakfast Pasta: This one-skillet pasta dish is convenient to make and also *super* fresh. You basically whip up the homemade tomato sauce while you’re cooking the bacon, add the pasta and then throw everything into your skillet. Crack the eggs on top, bake in the oven, and enjoy! (via The Kitchen Paper)
3. Brussels Sprouts, Bacon and Fried Egg Pasta: In case you’ve been living under a rock, you’ll know that fried eggs are being put on top of pretty much everything these days. One of our favorite combinations? Pasta and eggs. The fried egg atop this dish seriously takes it to the next level. (via Baker Bettie)
4. Sweet Noodle Kugel: Kugel is a traditional Jewish dish that’s often served as a casserole or dessert. But we say there’s absolutely no harm in eating it for breakfast. This sweet noodle casserole is made with cottage cheese, sugar, raisins, cinnamon and noodles. (via Collecting Memories)
5. Breakfast Mac and Cheese: There’s nothing inherently UN-breakfasty about mac and cheese: It’s a carb topped with cheese, after all! This dish takes it one step further, adding a decadent biscuit crumble on top. (via Spicy Southern Kitchen)
6. Spiralized Pasta With Egg and Asparagus: Okay, so this one isn’t TECHNICALLY a breakfast recipe, but we think it totally could be. It’s also light and healthy, made with spiralized zucchini and a touch of real linguine. Add asparagus and top with a poached egg, and you’ve got your new fave brunch dish. (via Sweet Peas and Saffron)
7. Hash Brown Breakfast Lasagna: This doesn’t actually contain any noodles, but HOLY CATS is it delish. This recipe is not for the faint of heart. It’s made with hash browns, two layers of gooey cheese, sausage, bacon and gravy. Let’s just say, you won’t be moving for a while after devouring this bad boy. (via Oh Bite It!)
8. Breakfast Pasta: This recipe is super simple to make, and boasts totally fresh ingredients that your crew is sure to love. Parmesan, garlic, olive oil and parsley top this delicious linguini dish, as do scrambled eggs. It’s kind of like a breakfast-y, pasta-based play on fried rice, when you think about it. (via Cherry on My Sundae)
10. Homemade Sausage Lasagna: This lasagna is another recipe that may not have been intended for brekky, but it totally fits the bill. This homemade lasagna calls for cream cheese and sausage — just use your favorite breakfast variety. (via A Spicy Perspective)
11. Breakfast Lasagna: This dish doesn’t actually contain any noodles at all, because it’s completely Paleo-friendly. That’s right, your carb-free gal pal can enjoy lasagna right along with the rest of you thanks to this sweet potato- and chorizo-based lasagna creation. (via PaleOMG)
12. Breakfast Pasta: It’s kind of like an omelette… only with pasta. Made with green peppers, eggs and potatoes, this classic breakfast pasta is sure to be a big hit. PRO TIP: Mix two egg whites into the mixture to keep things extra frothy and flavorful. (via Spoon Fork Bacon)
13. BLT Carbonara: Bacon lovers, this one’s for you. This decadent recipe calls for not only bacon, but also eggs, heavy cream, Parmesan and white wine. We promise the wine cooks off completely — save the boozing for mimosas, DUH. (via Tide & Thyme)
14. Chinese Sausage Carbonara: Never had Chinese sausage before? You’re in for a treat. It’s similar in texture and taste to bacon, making it perfect for your basic brunch-time pasta needs. You can find it in the refrigerated section of most Asian grocery stores. (via i am a food blog)

Pocket doors are so delightful in and of themselves. They appear when you need them, get tucked away when you don't, and make it easy to define rooms while keeping an open floor plan. Add to the pocket door a joyful patterned wallpaper surprise, and you will be sent right into fits of visual jubilation! Or something ;) Today we're sharing two simple and impactful pocket door makeovers that zhuzh up your space in a jiffy.
Anjelika Temple here, co-founder of Brit + Co and proud owner of several pocket doors! When I moved into my first real grown-up house a couple years ago, I knew I wanted to incorporate wallpaper so reached out to our friends at Chasing Paper to see how we might collaborate. It felt like a total lightbulb moment when I realized I could create a surprise pop of pattern on a couple sets of pocket doors.
Not only is it a whimsical way to bring color into a space, but the doors double as picture-perfect backdrops for all your SFH (selfies from home, obvs).
A few pro tips about install:
- Removable wallpaper is miraculously forgiving! You can take it on and off multiple times without it losing integrity (or mucking up your surface).
- I ordered this adhesive wallpaper installation kit with a squeegee and xacto knife and it worked super well. I also recommend a sharp pair of scissors for cutting longer lines.
- This is a two-person job! Get a friend, put on a playlist, and get ready to bond.
- Wild, organic patterns like Tally are great because it's challenging to spot any imperfections in pattern alignment; keep pattern choice in mind if you've got a lot of corners to match up. More geometric patterns and larger shapes leave less room for error (but are awesome in their own right!).
BATHROOM POCKET DOORS
In our primary bathroom, we chose the wallpaper pattern Tally, designed by Kelly Ventura, in White and Navy. In our space, the navy reads as a soft black, which is perfect for the space. It's easy to combine an ever-rotating collection of linens with the Tally pattern.
I love how the white trim becomes the perfect frame around this pocket door piece of art.
My favorite moment in this space is the fact that you actually get a third pop of pattern thanks to our serendipitously placed mirror!
And yes, this one works pretty darn well as a backdrop too ;)
LIVING ROOM DOUBLE DOORS
This set of doors is definitely a focal point of our home. It separates our living room from our primary bedroom which opens onto our backyard. The doors are pretty much always open, but when they're closed we wanted to evoke a fun, nature-inspired vibe. With that in mind, we selected the Lines and Moons pattern by Thimblepress in Green and Brown.
Earth mama vibes up in here! I love how the shapes and colors echo the ferns you see through the windows and the acorn wood details throughout the house.
Love this pattern moment, and xacto-ing out the door handle is def on the oddly satisfying DIY list.
For a pattern lover like me, I love that now I have this instant photo backdrop!
