LOVE this! I make pasta pizza's as I like to call them all the time with leftovers and love them. This recipe was no diffrent. I had tons of peppers and onions left over from a taco night and wanted to use them up so this was perfect. The topping or filling for it was great! I scaled this down a lot and made it all in a skillet. Love the mixture of peppers and white beans. Very good!
Had some leftover spaghetti so made this for dinner last night. It was good, filling and tasty but not quite as good as my Fettucine Frittata which is based on the same principal. Thanks for posting though!
