Spaghetti and Vegetable Frittata

Spaghetti and Vegetable FrittataI found a similar-to-this-recipe in the January All You magazine and just had to make it, gluten free of course.   I have discovered that frittatas are one of the best ways to get my kids to eat their vegetables.  And they can be a wonderful meatless meal.Spaghetti and Vegetable FrittataThe original recipe called for zucchini, tomatoes and spinach.  None of those particular vegetables are favorites with my kids, so I put in broccoli and tri-colored bell peppers.  I used Fontina instead of Mozzarella and Parmesan.   I added more eggs and more flavor in the form of seasonings.    I used a new brand of rice pasta and was a little disappointed in its texture.   I will stick with Tinkyada in the future.

  1. Wow, I would say that’s an entirely new recipe there. I would eat the original version, but Dudette’s like your kids and wouldn’t go near it unless forced. Your version, however, she’d be more than willing to pull a chair up to the table. Heck, so would I.

  2. oooh rice pasta!! I was wondering why you were putting a frittata over rice! 🙂 well this makes more sense and I love your take on a baked frittata! My kids would swoon for this one!
