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


  1. Chop onion.

    Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat.
  2. Cook onion in the melted butter until soft and golden.
  3. Stir fry the noodles a minute or two with the onion.

    Add salt and pepper.
  4. In a bowl, beat the eggs, and blend in the milk.
  5. Pour the egg mixture into the skillet. Cook briefly, then scramble, until eggs are set.
  6. NOTE: 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!
  7. *This recipe is easily made gluten free, by using leftover GF spaghetti. (I only use Tinkyada brand.)
