Fritatta Scramble

Tam D


This is one of the best recipes I never thought I'd love. When my children were small, we couldn't afford to waste anything. So I had to find something to do with leftover spaghetti noodles, that didn't involve tomato sauce. This is the recipe I tried, and to my surprise, loved it! The kids ate it up, too. That's a big win. It's so simple, and so tasty, you'll wonder (as I did) why you never thought of it before. It's weirdly wonderful :)

How to Make Fritatta Scramble

    Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat.

    Add salt and pepper.
  • 4In a bowl, beat the eggs, and blend in the milk.

  • 6NOTE: This is a great way to use up any leftover pasta -- spaghetti, egg noodles, any kind of rice noodle... And you can stir in anything you like: mushrooms, peppers..
    It's a very flexible recipe, but I think simple is best!
