Frittata with Whole Wheat Spaghetti and Spinach

Prep time 10 mins
Cook time 25 mins
Yield 4 servings (serving size: 1 wedge)
Feta is traditionally made from sheep's milk, which gives it a strong, tangy flavor. Today, pasteurized cow's milk is often used for a much milder flavor. We prefer the flavor of traditional feta in this recipe.

Ingredients

  • 4 ounces uncooked whole wheat thin spaghetti, broken in half
  • 1 teaspoon butter, divided
  • 1 cup vertically sliced onion
  • 2 large garlic cloves, minced
  • 3 large eggs
  • 3 large egg whites
  • 1/2 cup fat-free milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 (10-ounce) package frozen chopped spinach, thawed, drained, and squeezed dry
  • 2/3 cup tomato and basil pasta sauce (such as Classico)
  • 1/3 cup (1 1/3 ounces) crumbled feta cheese
