This frittata is simply, left over spaghetti tossed with eggs and cheese, then slowly fried to a crispy and crunchy texture. It’s so delicious and versatile you can make this dish using any kind of pasta!
During Summertime, we enjoy bringing this frittata to the beach or pool side for family and friends to enjoy as a healthy snack! So try something new by using something old, turning the left over pasta… into a Frittata the very next day! Enjoy!
