Here is a new recipe from my weekly menu plan #7 with easy and frugal recipes for your family.
It’s a simple and delicious pasta frittata!
This recipe is perfect to recycle pasta leftovers in a delicious way. When I make pasta, I always have leftovers which I use the next day for a frittata or I freeze them for a later use as a frittata.
Like I did the last time I’ve made spaghetti carbonara. I’ve frozen the spaghetti to use them now in my menu for a frittata.
I’ve heat some oil in a pan, add diced garlic and some tomato sauce. After that, I’ve added the pasta and mixed all together.
Then I’ve whisked the eggs and added the parmesan cheese. Poured it over the pasta in the pan. Spiced with Italian herbs, salt and pepper.
And let it cook with closed lid and low heat for about 10 minutes. And this is the result! A simple and delicious pasta frittata!
I recommend you, please never ever throw away pasta leftovers!! You always can make a delicious frittata out of it.
Sometimes I have different sorts of pasta leftovers in the freezer which I mix up and make a frittata!
Serve with a salad and you have a perfect weeknight dinner for your family!
Here is the recipe!
- 350 g of pasta (best leftovers, but also freshly cooked)
- 1 small cans of chopped tomatoes
- 2 cloves garlic, diced
- 2 teaspoons Italian herbs, frozen
- 4 eggs
- 2 tbsp parmesan cheese, grated
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- salt and pepper
This recipe is suitable to use pasta and spaghetti, which are left over, but can equally well be prepared with freshly cooked pasta! In this case, first, cook the pasta according to pack instructions al dente.
Heat the oil in a pan and simmer the garlic. Add the chopped tomatoes and season with salt, pepper and the herbs and simmer for about 10 minutes.
Whisk the eggs in a bowl and add the parmesan cheese.
Now place the pasta directly in the pan to the sauce and stir everything well.
Then add the whisked eggs and distribute well.
Let the eggs stomp at low heat and closed lid for about 10 minutes.
The frittata is ready and can be served with a delicious salad!
