Pasta Fritatta
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 3-4
  • Leftover plain pasta
  • 3-5 eggs
  • grated cheese
  • olive oil
  • 1 cup of ricotta
  1. Heat up a Teflon or stainless steel pan with about a tablespoon of olive oil. Because you are going to have to put it in the oven to finish cooking you will need an oven proof pan. Place the left over pasta in your pan with a dash of olive (you're looking to re-heat the pasta). Once you have your hot, add two-three dollops of fresh ricotta and a bit of salt and pepper.
  2. Thoroughly mix the ingredients and remove from the pan. Next, beat two eggs and two egg whites together with salt and pepper (you can of course use 4 whole eggs but I don't like the extra cholesterol and the flavor isn't compromised buy using some egg whites).
  3. Place the pasta mixture back in the pan and pour the beaten eggs on top of the pasta. Cook for about five minutes. To finish cooking the top of the frittata, place the pan under the broiler but keep a close eye on the contents. It is done when the frittata is browned nicely on top.
  4. Sprinkle a generous amount of grated cheese and enjoy hot or cold.
