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?
