Spaghetti Frittata

Spaghetti Frittata: another frugal recipe to use your leftover spaghetti from yesterday's dinner!
Here’s a savory spaghetti frittata, another frugal recipe made with a handful of leftover pasta from yesterday’s spaghetti dinner. I already made a leftover spaghetti salad and soup so I had to dig deep to find me another great recipe that wouldn’t make the pasta look like a real leftover.
I added some fresh herbs I could find in my little herb garden: parsley and mint. But feel free to add whatever fresh herb(s) you have. This frittata makes a perfect light lunch.

  11. Flip the frittata and cook the other side. If you’re not feeling comfortable about turning the frittata, put a plate over the hot pan and turn quickly. Let the frittata slide from the plate back in the hot pan on its uncooked side.
