Frittata Di Spaghetti (With Sausage and Mushrooms)

"This is a great way to use up left-over spaghetti (or left-over pasta of any kind). I often cook extra spaghetti just so I can make this the next morning. You can use unsauced pasta as well, but I like the spaghetti just covered with red sauce. This is a wonderful brunch dish and one that many have never tried before. Have some warm red sauce (try (Recipe#350995)) to serve over and top with grated Parmigiana and a sprinkle of finely shredded fresh basil leaves."

Ready In:




  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a medium skillet, melt the butter with 2 tablespoons of the olive oil. Add the sausage and cook and crumble over medium heat until sausage loses its pinkness, 5 to 7 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for 30 seconds more. Add the mushrooms and cook, stirring often, until softened, about 2 minutes. Add the onion and cook until softened, about 5 minutes.
  • Transfer this mixture to a large bowl and add the pasta, that is already mixed with the tomato sauce (or unsauced), prosciutto, cream, and a 1/4 cup of the Parmigiano Reggiano cheese, and salt and pepper, to taste. Add the eggs and stir to combine.
  • Heat the remaining olive oil in a clean 10-inch, non-stick ovenproof skillet over medium heat (if the skillet is not ovenproof, wrap the handle tightly in aluminum foil). Add the egg mixture and cook over medium heat until the bottom of eggs is set and a light golden brown color appears. (Do NOT over-brown by using too much heat, too fast!).
  • Place the pan into the preheated oven and bake for 7 minutes, or until eggs are set to desired consistency and begin to puff up a bit. Remove from oven and let rest for about 2 minutes. Cut into wedges and serve with remaining grated cheese, and warm red sauce and sprinkled with shredded basil leaves, if desired.
  • Mangia Bene!

    This was a very good recipe. It was fairly easy and was the results were delicious. The only things I did not do (and will make sure to do next time) were to use canned parm and did not use the basil. Will be sure to have the fresh parm/reggiano and basil on hand next time. I think those 2 things are key to making this recipe!

    I tried this recipe this morning and it is the first time I have ever made a frittata. I thought it was a great way to use up spaghetti from the night before. I didn't make as is. I cooked some mushrooms in olive oil. Mixed the leftover spaghetti and sauce (no meat) in with the milk, eggs and shredded babybel cheese and cooked on medium in a cast iron pan. Perhaps it would have been even better with the sausage, garlic and prosciutto. I will have to try this again. Thanks for posting this recipe.

    I made the frittata as posted using unsauced angel hair pasta and the six people at my table all gave it five stars - even my finicky husband. A definite keeper, thanks for sharing this one too. Made for "New KIds on the Block", a tag game.


<p>I recently celebrated my 19th anniversary living in SW Florida. I moved here from Massachusetts, just north of Boston. As much as I miss family back home, I truly love living here - the beaches, the tropical beauty, the people, and the weather (except the hurricanes!). Everyday is just another day in Paradise. I work at the new international airport here in Fort Myers. I have an opportunity to meet many different and interesting people from around the world. I've had an interest in cooking since I was a little boy, following my grandmother around the kitchen. Since I wasn't blessed with any artistic or musical talent, I think cooking was my way of being creative. My passion is my family and friends. My second passion is cooking for them. My favorite way to entertain is informally...brunches, cookouts, and small dinner parties. Just relaxing, enjoying each other's company, some good food and drink, and a little fun are the only rules of the house.</p>
