Do eggs belong in pasta sauce? TikTok has some strong feelings

A TikTok user has the internet deeply

divided after sharing what some are calling a

“psychotic” recipe for marinara sauce.

Andrea Catanese posted a clip of the

controversial method in late June. Since

then, her video has drawn more than 500,000

views, and plenty of strong feelings.

Catanese’s video begins with a large pot of

sauce cooking on her stovetop. Then, she dumps

around 10 hard-boiled eggs into the mix.

“Does anyone else put hard-boiled eggs in their

spaghetti?” Catanese asks in the clip. “If you haven’t

tried it, you should. It’s delicious”.

Several commenters took the

recipe as a crime against pasta.

“The police are on their

way,” one user wrote.

“15 generations of Italians just rolled

over in their grave,” another added.

Others claimed that many authentic marinara

recipes actually did call for hard-boiled eggs.

“My grandmother was Sicilian and she use to put

hard boiled eggs in her spaghetti!!” one user wrote
