Thyme Pasta Frittata

A beautiful pasta frittata full of fresh herbs, cheese, and lemon zest. If you pre-cook the pasta and shred the cheese the day before the rest is super quick work. I enjoyed a wedge with green grapes this afternoon.

  • 6 eggs
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan
  • 3 cups cooked and cooled penne pasta
  • 3 tablespoons coarsely chopped fresh thyme leaves
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 1 lemon, zested
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs and milk. Stir in the cheese, pasta, 2 tablespoons of the thyme, parsley, lemon zest, salt, and pepper.

In a 10-inch nonstick skillet, heat the oil over medium heat. Pour the egg mixture into the pan and cook for 7 to 8 minutes until the edges begin to brown. Remove the pan from the heat. Using a spatula, slide the frittata onto a dinner plate. Carefully invert the frittata back into the skillet and continue to cook until firm, 5 to 6 minutes

Garnish with the remaining thyme. Cut into wedges and serve warm or at room temperature.

Yesterday, Andy and I headed over to Scratch Bakery where we were meeting Sarah, Josh, and Lacey for lunch. I ordered the lardo pizza with fresh ricotta, hot peppers, & mint and Andy the pimento cheese sandwich. Both were delicious and you can really taste the difference with the quality, local ingredients Phoebe Lawless uses.
