Sam's Cafe Pasta Frittata


  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh garlic
  • 1 cup diced green peppers
  • 1 cup diced red peppers
  • 2 cups sliced mushrooms
  • 2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 tsp white pepper
  • 1 lbs fresh spinach leaves
  • 2 cups small diced ham
  • 16 eggs
  • 1/2 quart half-and-half
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan, plus more, for garnish
  • 8 oz mozzarella, shredded
  • 1/4 cup chopped basil
  • 10 oz spaghetti, cooked
  • 1/4 cup chopped parsley


In a sauté pan and over a high heat, add the olive oil, fresh garlic, red and green peppers, mushrooms, salt, and pepper. Let the mixture cook until vegetables are slightly softened, and then add the spinach and ham and let simmer for 5 minutes. Strain the mixture well and add it to a slightly greased 2-inch deep baking pan.

In a separate bowl combine the eggs and half-and-half, and mix well with a wire whisk. Add the combination to the baking pan along with the Parmesan, mozzarella, fresh basil, and spaghetti. Mix all the ingredients together gently.

Preheat the oven to 350° F. Place the baking pan in the middle rack and cook for 25 to 30 minutes. Remove the pan from the oven and let it stand for 5 minutes. Garnish the pasta frittata with Parmesan and fresh parsley and serve.
