  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain.
  2. Heat olive oil in a skillet or frying pan. Add onion and saute until clear. Stir in green pepper; cook until soft. Add the cooked pasta and chopped ham; toss well to combine. Pour in the eggs and season with salt and pepper.
  3. Cook until firm on one side; flip and cook until firm on the other side. You may split the frittata with a spatula to make the flipping easier.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • Add any veggies you like to your frittata-- diced broccoli, peas--and cook with the onion and bell pepper until crisp-tender.
  • You need about 3 servings' worth of cooked pasta; leftover spaghetti is fine.

Great idea! versatile, and adaptable. I've done similar but I never adding the ham and angle hair together! Will keep, and share!

Per others, added spinach and mushrooms. Also added tomatoes. Now: don't know how you would successfully flip this, and I don't have an oven safe skillet so instead (if I did, would pour into s...
