Frittata Di Spaghetti (Spaghetti Omelet)

Total Time
Prep 2 mins

A delicious and simple way to use up leftover pasta.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine the pasta, eggs and cheese, stirring well. Season.
  2. Heat half of the butter in a large heavy bottomed frying pan. Pour in the egg mixture, lower the heat and cook for 10 minutes until the eggs are just set but still very soft. Slip a knife around the edge to loosen the omelet, then using a spatula turn the frittata cooked side up on to a plate (patch up the pieces if it breaks).
  3. Heat the rest of the butter in the pan, slide the frittata back into the pan, soft side down and cook for a few minutes. You can also cook the top side by just dotting with butter and grilling, but I prefer the pan method.
  4. Cut into wedges and serve.

My grandma used to make this alot. I sometimes adapt the recipe for a great dinner main dish. I include any and all pizza toppings that I have on hand, save the cheese for the top, and prepare it like a pizza after the initial turn, placing it in the oven for a few minutes. Great recipe, economical, and all in one pan too !

Great idea for leftover spaghetti! Ours was in a tomato and mascarpone sauce which went so well with the cheese and egg mix. Will definitely make this again!

Great use for leftover pasta. I used some left over angel hair. I didn't have any sauce so i pored a quarter bottle of salsa into the mix. Came out nicely. Thanks
