Using Leftover Pasta

When we lived in southern Italy there was always left over pasta. My friend Ellena use to make a frittata out of it for a late night supper. You have to remember that the big meal of the day was eaten around 1:30-2:00. A short break from work and then back around 6-7:00 depending on the time of the year. My daughter Shawn and I were just discussing how to make these the other day. Well, last night was spaghetti night and I had a bag full of left over pasta. Below is the frittata I made for lunch.

I started with an onion fried in a little Olive Oil till translucent, don't let it burn.  I had dried tomatoes from the garden this summer and set them to soak In a bowl of warm water.


Next I whipped up 5 eggs and added the chopped up spaghetti from last night.


When the onion was ready I mixed the eggs and the pasta together. Poured this mixture over the onions and topped it off with the tomatoes,salt and pepper and dried basil from the garden.  Let it cook on low till it was set up.

I covered the pan with a plate and inverted it. Flipped the frittata and let it continue to cook for a few more minutes.  The final frittata was served on a plate with a light sprinkling of grated cheese.

A perfect lunch with plenty left  over for this evening. A little salad and dinner will be ready to go.

If you have made something like this, I would love to try other recipes.

Till Later
