Spaghetti Frittata

Rating: 3.5 stars 9
Here's a creative way to use leftover cooked spaghetti: try mixing it with eggs for a filling Italian omelet. If you don't want to buy separate bunches of fresh herbs, look for an Italian blend package that may contain some of each or use one-third the amount of dried.

Zucchini Frittata

Rating: 5 stars 3
A frittata, as a flat omelet is known in Italy, can be filled with a variety of vegetables and cheeses and makes a great impromptu brunch dish or supper. In this version, fresh mint and basil brighten the mild taste of zucchini. If you prefer, use feta or ricotta salata in place of the goat cheese.

Vegan Chickpea Frittata

This vegan chickpea frittata is a creamy breakfast (or dinner!) dish loaded with veggies. The tomatoes give a burst of flavor in each bite, while the mushrooms add a savory note. The black salt is what gives this vegan frittata an egg-like flavor, but regular salt can be used in its place.
