Zucchini Noodle and Spinach Frittata with Goat Cheese

In the summertime, zucchinis grow so quickly! They seem to almost grow like weeds, popping up everywhere.

Of course, making a spiralized pasta or salad is a quick, easy, go-to way to use up all that garden zucchini. But, if you’re looking to switch it up, try adding your spiralized zucchini into frittatas!

One of my favorite things to do in the summertime is to go to the farmer’s market, pick up some fresh eggs, veggies (zucchinis included), come home, and make a “farmer’s market frittata.” That’s where the inspiration came for this dish!

This recipe is another revamped one (originally posted here) – I cleaned up the recipe and took some new photos.

Zucchini Noodle and Spinach Frittata with Goat Cheese

The fluffy goat cheese gives this simple frittata the extra flavor boost. This frittata is mild enough that it can be sliced and eaten as a frittata sandwich, maybe with some mashed avocado on top. It’s a one-pan meal, making cleanup a breeze, and usually, you can find fresh goat cheese at the farmer’s market, so you don’t need to look any further than your farm stand to make this meal!

I always think that the zucchini noodles poking out on top of the frittata looks pretty, too – I always pull a few out before transferring to the oven so you can see them.

Next time you think of making that boring bowl of cereal for breakfast, take a trip to the store or farmer’s market and make this frittata instead!

What size, brands and pan finishes do you recommend for making frittatas? I am leary of non-stick coatings and I haven't been very successful with seasoning my cast iron pan. Do you recommend a stainless steel or multi clad pan? Certain brands? Thank you.

Thank goodness I opened my email on a Sunday seeing "zucchini and spinach frittata" screaming BRUNCH! Inspired, I made a zucchini and spinach frittata added red onions and feta. Mahalo Ali! Delicious

This looks delish!! I have been wanting to make a frittata for a while, so this is great timing. How does this keep for leftovers? I loooove goat cheese, but the husband not so much. So if I make it, it'll be up to me to eat the left overs :)
Missy says:
The next greatest invention after spiralized vegetables, is using them in your eggs! I love this idea and definitely adding it to my "to-make" list! I recently posted my own breakfast casserole using Butternut Squash, eggs and gruyere on www.behindtheplates.com , its a favorite!

Is a serving 1/4 or 1/8 when figuring the nutritonal data? Important for diabetics to know. Also how many ounces is a large, medium, small zucchini?

remember a couple weeks ago when I sat in front of this same mirror, tucked my long hair into a sweater and debated whether to chop it all off or not? 💇🏻‍♀️ I think we all know what that decision was 🤪⁣

this is still by far the coziest sweater I own and they sell it in a yellow that's perfect for spring and I'm debating whether or not to get it 😬 I've been in a funk all week and can't seem to shake it. retail therapy moment?!⁣

jokes aside, I need a vacation. more specifically, I need 🍹 on a 🏝... anyone else?  ⁣

actually, I put the @oculus goggles on the other night to go to a virtual beach, and I almost started crying... the sounds of the seagulls, the little turtle crawling on the sand, the bright sun, the sounds of the waves crashing, the white stand, the wind and the palm trees.... I had no idea how therapeutic the ocean and the beach are for me!⁣

I've thought a lot about where our first "trip" will be once it's safe to travel again, and I've decided on a beach resort. will you do something adventurous or something lazy and beachy? http://liketk.it/39bMq #liketkit @liketoknow.it

I love to have a few mini loafs in the freezer to easily defrost for breakfasts or snacks for the kids, but also for myself - slathered with nut butter and a little sprinkle of hemp seeds 🥜 or some honey, butter and cinnamon for the kids 🍯🧈  ⁣

grab the recipe on the blog! happy monday! 🙌🏼⁣

went for a nice long walk outside with the kids (we haven’t been able to do that for a while, because it’s just been so freezing and/or snowing) 🥶 and then we decided to pick up some to-go sandwiches and while we waited, the kids had some banana bread and juice 🍊🍌🍞 luca said, “mama I want to stay here alllll day!” which made me feel sad, because we haven’t felt comfortable dining indoors yet, and I’m sure he misses the people watching at restaurants on the weekends 😔 it’s okay, I’m just filing this under “things we get to look forward to when it’s safe again” 💋 #jerseycity ...
