Spaghetti Frittata

A great recipe for al fresco dining, make it when you have left over pasta noodles

Servings 6

Ingredients

  • 3 cups Spaghetti noodles, cooked, drained and cold
  • 8 lg Eggs
  • 1 cup Parmesan cheese, imported
  • 1/2 cup Mixed chopped herbs, basil, thyme, parsley
  • 3 tbls Extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt and fresh ground pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. In a mixing bowl, add the eggs, beat well with a fork, add the parmesan cheese, salt and pepper

  2. Add the spaghetti mix well with a fork, add the herbs and mix again until everything is incorporated 

  3. In a 10-12" non stick skillet add olive oil, heat oil on a medium heat, when hot add the egg spaghetti mixture, turn the heat to a medium low, cook until  the bottom of the frittata becomes a golden brown when you lift up the side.  Approximately 5-8 minutes

  4. With a plate larger than the size of the skillet, place the plate over the skillet, carefully flip the frittata on the plate, then slide the uncooked side of the frittata back into the pan,  this takes a little practice but, easy once you understand the concept

  5. Cook the other side until golden brown, place on a round platter, serve immediately or at room temperature

Buon Appetito!

  1. Brother Bob almost always first sautés zucchini and mixes it with the pasta and egg mixture. Also, after too many bad experiences trying to flip the half cooked frittata, I now cover it with a lid while it is cooking over low heat so that it cooks most of the way through and finish cooking the top under the oven’s broiler. Just before it is done, I sprinkle grated parmesiano or romano cheese on it and let the chees melt for a couple of minutes under the broiler. When done I again cover it and let it sit for a few minutes to assure that it is fully set.
