No Bake Leftover Pasta Frittata

 

When your refrigerator is full of leftover food from the previous days lunch or dinners or parties then there is no point cooking fresh meals and letting the leftovers go waste. Rather there are lot of options to use them to create some surprising and delicious new dishes.

In my kitchen the leftover dals go in the Paratha dough to make some nutritious Dal parathas, left over idli and dosa batter is made into Masala veggie Paniyarams, leftover idlis make awesome Masala idlis and idli Manchurian, Old Chapatis are turned into oriental style chapati noodles, stale bread make soft and creamy Caramel Bread Pudding and so on.

Last week my fridge had leftover Mac and Cheese from the previous day’s dinner and with the 142nd Foodie Monday Bloghop‘s theme being Cooked Leftovers I decided to give the Mac and Cheese a new makeover ….a A Pasta Frittata. Frittata is an egg based Italian dish resembling an omelette or a crustless quiche, enriched with extra ingredients like veggies, cheese and meats.

So get creative and add any Pasta like spaghetti, Macaroni, Penne with any type of sauce like Carbonara or Arabiatta or Pesto.The Pasta gives body to the Frittata but too much of sauce will not help the Frittata to hold together. Throw in some veggies, bacon, sausages and some fresh herbs for flavour. I used some Spinach, Mushrooms, Cherry tomatoes and Sundried Tomatoes with dried mixed herbs and a handful of Cheddar Cheese to the eggs and leftover mac and cheese and made it on the stove top.

Can the Frittata be baked?

Another alternative is to bake the Frittata in a pie dish or a oven proof frying pan at 180 deg C for 10 mins or till the egg on the top is set and lightly browned.
