  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain.
  2. Heat olive oil in a skillet or frying pan. Add onion and saute until clear. Stir in green pepper; cook until soft. Add the cooked pasta and chopped ham; toss well to combine. Pour in the eggs and season with salt and pepper.
  3. Cook until firm on one side; flip and cook until firm on the other side. You may split the frittata with a spatula to make the flipping easier.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Notes:
  • Add any veggies you like to your frittata-- diced broccoli, peas--and cook with the onion and bell pepper until crisp-tender.
  • You need about 3 servings' worth of cooked pasta; leftover spaghetti is fine.

Great easy recipe for leftovers! I modified this slightly by adding spinach and then cooking it in the oven. It turned out GREAT!

Are you sure it should be 8 ounces of pasta? Don't see how this was supposed to be "flipped" with all that spaghetti. We ended up with a rather unappetizing display. The flavor was ok.

I liked this. I used broccoli and mushrooms, since I can't eat bell peppers or corn and reduced the pasta by 25%. I still found it was a bit too much pasta so I added a bit more egg. I am prett...
