A frittata is one of the easiest ways to prepare eggs, and the results look like you’ve spent hours in the kitchen. Even if you make frittatas all the time, adding pasta may be a new twist. Pasta creates a heartier dish that is perfect for lunch on a busy weekend or cut up into squares for a road trip.
