  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 easy recipe for leftovers! I modified this slightly by adding spinach and then cooking it in the oven. It turned out GREAT!

Are you sure it should be 8 ounces of pasta? Don't see how this was supposed to be "flipped" with all that spaghetti. We ended up with a rather unappetizing display. The flavor was ok.

Loved this!!! I added more onions than called for and didn't have any bell peppers, but it didn't seem to make a difference. My friend said it tasted like a ham and cheese omelet with pasta in the middle...YUMMY! Kids loved it too!

I liked this. I used broccoli and mushrooms, since I can't eat bell peppers or corn and reduced the pasta by 25%. I still found it was a bit too much pasta so I added a bit more egg. I am pretty inept with flipping so I cooked this in a cast iron skillet on the stovetop and the put in the oven for about 20 minutes. Came out great. Only thing I would do differently next time is more seasoning. I tasted the mixture and it was fine, but when you take a bite with the pasta after it is cooked, it seems a bit bland.. so next time I'll overseason the mixture so it'll balance out when I eat it

I made this into a serving for one by using 4 oz cooked pasta, 1/2 C leftover fajita peppers and onions, 2 oz fajita chicken, 2 eggs, a handful of baby spinach, and 1 oz Mexican cheese. I started on the stove top in a cast iron pan and finished in the oven under the broiler. It was a great way to combine the leftovers of two meals into a unique third.

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 skillet, cook for 5 min or so and the transfer to oven to finalize cooking but......I don't), I poured into a 9x13 dish. Baked at 350 for apprx 25-30 min until set. I still think it needs a bit more seasoning so I don't have to rely on s&p (thyme? Sage? Italian seasoning?) but great start and overall I am happy with results but to get an a+ I need to play around with just a bit....great recipe still!
