Frittata with Whole Wheat Spaghetti and Spinach

Frittata with Whole Wheat Spaghetti and Spinach

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.
