Noodle Frittata

The other day we made some pasta with vegetables and tempeh for dinner.  We ended up making a lot more than expected and I decided to create a pasta “frittata” for brunch.

This came out surprisingly well and was a welcome addition to our weekend brunch repertoire.

Noodle Frittata


  • a bunch of leftover pasta
  • olive oil
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • various spices of your choosing

To Do:

  1. Preheat your oven to 375F.
  2. Mix together the eggs, milk, salt, pepper and various spices of your choosing.
  3. Heat the olive oil over medium-high heat in an oven-safe skillet (cast iron rules!) and place the pasta in it.
  4. Stir the pasta a bit until it heats up.
  5. Pour the egg mixture over the top of the pasta and distribute it throughout the mixture evenly.  Sprinkle the Parmesan cheese on top.
  6. Place the skillet in the oven and bake until the top is golden brown – about 15 minutes or so.
  7. Serve!

    I do this pretty often. People always think it’s weird to put pasta in a frittata, but it’s GOOD!
