    NcMysteryShopper's Note:

    Leftover pasta has never tasted so good! It is so good in fact, you may find yourself making extra pasta just to make this dish! The cool thing about this recipe is that the Frittata can be made ahead of time! It can sit at room temperature for about 3 hours before serving! Original recipe is by Mark Strausman, author of The Campagna Table.

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
    • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
    • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
    • 1/4 lb white mushroom, thinly sliced
    • 1 small onion, minced
    • 2 cups spaghetti in tomato sauce
    • 2 ounces thinly sliced prosciutto (if using bacon, blanch it first in boiling water for a few minutes, then rinse and drain) or 2 ounces lean bacon (if using bacon, blanch it first in boiling water for a few minutes, then rinse and drain) or 2 ounces black forest ham, finely chopped (if using bacon, blanch it first in boiling water for a few minutes, then rinse and drain)
    • 1/2 cup heavy cream
    • 1/2 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
    • salt & freshly ground black pepper
    • 8 large eggs, lightly beaten

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 350°.
    2. 2
      In a medium skillet, melt butter along with 2 tablespoons of olive oil over moderately high heat. Add the garlic and saute for about 30 seconds. Add mushrooms and continue stirring for about 2 minutes. Add onion and cook until softened, about 5 minutes.
    3. 3
      Transfer mixture to a large bowl and add the spaghetti in tomato sauce, prosciutto or other dried cured ham product, cream and 1/4 cup of the Parmesan. Season with salt and pepper. Add the lightly beaten eggs and toss the mixture until it is evenly distributed. .
    4. 4
      Heat the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a large ovenproof or cast iron skillet until shimmering. Swirl to coat sides and pour in the frittata mixture, spreading it evenly. Cook over moderately high heat until the frittata is barely set on the bottom, about 3 minutes. Sprinkle the remaining 1/4 cup of Parmesan over the top.
    5. 5
      Place the skillet in the preheated oven and bake for about 30 minutes, or until it is firm in the center and cooked through.
    6. 6
      Remove from oven and run a knife around the edge of the pan to loosen the frittata from the sides. Place a large round plate or platter over the top of the pan and flip the skillet and platter. Use oven mitts as the skillet will be hot. Serve it cut into wedges, hot or at room temperature.

      Hi Cheryl, what a fantastic meal! We loved this dish - I had some left-over linguine, used some lean bacon and the only thing I added (believe it or not) was to add some crushed red pepper to the saute pan with the garlic - other than that, I changed nothing. It was awesome and hit the spot! I amtrying to get them to Use it at our "Cafe Ponce" as one of the items on the menu for the home. It was great, thanks Cheryl for posting, Diane :)

      I had everything except the meat and the heavy cream so I used the bacon option and I mixed everything up with half and half left over from the coffee. Came out perfect! Loved it!! Made for the ZWT 4 Fancy Feinschmeckers

      Ms Rinshin is right... this frittata is excellent. We thoroughly enjoyed this recipe and I will always be sure to have a little leftover pasta so we can enjoy this delicious brunch. Thanks NCMS! Your recipes are always great.
