Frittata Pasta

 
This recipe is a blend of two dishes ... Frittata and Pasta.... both when combined together, you get a new and tasty dish called Frittata Pasta. A tasty evening snack for kids after coming back from school.


Both Frittata and Pasta is an Italian dish. Frittata is an egg-based Italian dish similar to an omelette or crust less quiche, enriched with additional ingredients such as meats, cheeses, vegetables or pasta. Pasta is a staple food of traditional Italian cuisine. (Wiki).

There are different varieties or shapes of pastas ... like Penne, Spirali, Spaghetti, Farfalle, Fusilli etc. Now a days, we get whole wheat pasta. For a healthier version, use whole wheat pasta.

This dish can be prepared with any variety of pasta. Here, I have used spirali pasta. Use any pasta of your choice and enjoy!!
