Extend the life of leftover spaghetti with this recipe for Bacon, Leek and Spaghetti Frittata. This one-dish meal makes a filling brunch dish or a light supper.
4 slices bacon, chopped
2 large leeks, white parts only, halved lengthwise, cut crosswise into thin slices
1 1/2 cups cooked spaghetti
8 large eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
2 tablespoons milk
2 tablespoons grated Parmesan
How to Make It
Preheat oven to 400°F. Warm an ovenproof nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add bacon and cook, stirring, until crisp, about 5 minutes. Remove and drain on paper towel-lined plate. Pour off all but 2 tablespoons fat from skillet and add leeks. Cook, stirring, until softened, about 5 minutes. Return bacon to skillet, add spaghetti and stir.
Season eggs with 1/2 tsp. salt and 1/4 tsp. pepper. Whisk in milk. Pour into skillet and stir. Cook, lifting sides of frittata with a spatula to let eggs flow underneath, until lightly browned around edges, about 5 minutes. Sprinkle Parmesan on top, transfer to oven and bake, uncovered, until firm in the center and lightly browned on top, about 7 minutes. Use a spatula to loosen frittata and slide onto a work surface. Cut into wedges and serve.
This worked out very nicely for my first foray into a frittata. I used angel hair pasta instead of spaghetti. Next time, I think I'll put some seeded tomato chunks and cut the richness a little bit. Maybe an avocado slice on top. I will make this again!
