Spinach & Goat Cheese Zucchini Spaghetti Frittata

Have you ever thrown leftover spaghetti into a frittata the next morning? If you haven’t, you’re missing out! My first year out of college, I used to order spaghetti from this great restaurant in Hoboken. The portions were always ginormous, so I’d save some in the fridge. Unfortunately, unlike Asian noodles, leftover spaghetti isn’t very appetizing. Pasta should be piping hot, creamy and the smell of the sauce should creep out of the bowl and into your nostrils. But what to do with all this leftover pasta? Throw it in a frittata!

My favorite type of frittata is spinach and goat cheese. There’s something about the way goat cheese complements cooked eggs – I just can’t get enough. After starting this blog, I couldn’t wait to make my frittatas with zucchini pasta. The zucchini noodles add a great crunch to this (like al dente pasta – no more squishy leftovers). Just a different way to get your daily dose of veggies…

Frittatas are great for brunches– serve with a fruit salad, home fries and/or warmed crusty whole wheat bread and you’ll impress your friends with your creativity in the kitchen! No more boring omelettes and frittatas – we’re Inspiralized! For Skinny Sunday, I am giving you two options: 1 with 75% egg whites and 1 with 100% egg whites. How quickly are you trying to fit into that bikini?

This looks gorgeous Ali. I can't wait to try it:-)

I'm not sure my skillet handle is oven safe. Think I could transfer it all to a glass baking dish before putting in the oven? Or would that mess up the setting of the eggs?

cleaned the grill today, which inspired me to grill for dinner, so I kept it simple with grilled potatoes, broccoli and chicken sausage. 🥦🥔 I also made some BBQ tempeh for myself, which was nice and hearty and I am excited to make it more this summer 🌽👏🏼 basically, I steamed it for 10 minutes and then slathered it in barbecue sauce and threw it on the grill for 10-15 minutes. super easy and delish! 🙏🏼

what’s everyone having for dinner tonight?! 👇🏼 #whatsfordinner #vegandinnerideas #vegandinners

it's friyyyyyyaayyyy and that means cheese & cracker plates, right? 🍷 my Pistachio & Cranberry Vegan Cheese Ball 🌱 is perfect for any occasion (yes, friday is an occasion!), a throwback recipe from my Inspiralized & Beyond cookbook! if you have the book, flip to page 88 and make this - definitely no cheese coma and you'll be amazed how cheese-like it tastes (kind of like a spreadable ricotta with tons of herby goodness!) 👏🏼⁣

what's everyone's weekend plans? I'll be in NYC for the second part of the photoshoot for my collaborative cookbook with @feedinglittles! 👯‍♀️⁣
