Serves: 4 mini frittatas (2 per serving)


Cut about 1/2 cup leftover cooked spaghetti noodles into 1-inch lengths. Optional: crisp noodles slightly in skillet with 1/2 teaspoon olive oil.

In a medium bowl, whisk together 4 large eggs, 3 tablespoons milk, and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Stir in 1/3 cup grated low-moisture mozzarella cheese and 1/4 cup (about 6) quartered (or cut into small pieces) cherry tomatoes.

Butter or spray 4 muffin cups in 12-cup muffin pan with non-stick vegetable spray. Divide spaghetti evenly among prepared cups. (For fun, you can also add a few cubes of mozzarella cheese to each cup). Ladle egg mixture over, filling almost to top.

Bake at 375F until puffed and golden, about 15-18 minutes.

Note: For a snack or breakfast treat, you can also bake these in a mini-muffin pan for bize-size frittatas.
