Leftover Spaghetti Frittata

“Leftovers oh leftovers
How you trouble me so,
As soon as I think you’re done
There in hiding are some more!
Whipped up a salad
And put you in soup,
Even added you to a curry
How low could I stoop!
Then in anger and haste
I added you to my breakfast bowl,
To get you out of sight
And out of my peaceful soul.
Oh bliss, finally you’re gone
I no longer live in sin,
The last of you as a Frittata
And I win.”
2 cups leftover boiled spaghetti
2 large eggs
4 tablespoons whole milk
2 teaspoons grated gruyere cheese
1 cup mixed vegetables (I used red & green peppers, onions and baby spinach)
¼ teaspoon dried red pepper flakes
½ teaspoon dry basil
1 tablespoon butter
Some mozzarella cheese, roughly torn
Salt & pepper
Heat the butter in a cast iron skillet. Add all the vegetables and sauté for a minute. Now add the Spaghetti and the dry spices and sauté for another minute.
Beat the eggs separately with the milk and some salt & pepper. Pour the egg mixture over the spaghetti evenly and let it set. Top with the Gruyere and mozzarella. Let it cook for a minute or two and then transfer to a 400 F pre-heated oven for 10 minutes till the egg is completely cooked through. Change mode to broil for 4-5 minutes, till the cheese on top has browned a little. Remove and enjoy!
