Spaghetti Frittata with Garlic Butter

image

Apologies, the boys named this one!

If I’m cooking pasta I always cook a little extra for salads and this dish if there is enough. It is the ultimate leftovers reinvented dish and really is simple to throw together.

My garlic butter is made in bulk and then frozen in 50g portions, 200g butter, 7 crushed cloves of garlic and a little salt and pepper. I package the portions in plastic wrap and form the butter into cylindrical shapes, easier to slice for garlic bread and steaks once it has defrosted.

Serves 4-6 depending on appetites.

Ingredients

50g garlic butter

600g cooked spaghetti

4 Roma tomatoes, cored and deseeded

6 medium basil leaves, torn

4 eggs, beaten

60mls sour cream

50g Parmesan, finely grated

Method

Preheat the grill on high.

In a large frying pan, heat the garlic butter.

As soon as it has melted, add the spaghetti and toss well in the butter.

Add the tomatoes and basil, keep tossing until the tomato is beginning to release its juice.

Combine the eggs and sour cream, whisk to mix.

Pour the egg over the spaghetti, mix a little to ensure all of the spaghetti has some egg mixture over it.

Cook, over a medium heat for 3-5 mins until the base is going golden.

Sprinkle over the Parmesan and then slide under the grill.

Bake for 3-5 mins until golden on top.

Allow to cool a little in the pan.

Gently slide out of the pan and onto a chopping board, use a sharp knife to cut wedges.

  1. My goodness, this sounds tasty! I am saving your recipe for use in the very near future ๐Ÿ™‚ It also reminded me about laying in my own stock of garlic butter. The little pats of pre-prepared butter look so tasty in the supermarket fridge in my neck of the woods, but I usually manage to hold off on buying them as they are quite expensive, somehow don’t taste quite as nice as they look, and are so easy to make at home – as your recipe shows ๐Ÿ™‚
