  • 5 tb Unsalted butter
  • 1 tb Olive oil
  • 1 md Onion; chopped
  • 1 Clove garlic; minced

  • 6 Eggs
  • 1/2 c Parmesan cheese; freshly

  • 1/2 ts Crushed red pepper


1- Heat 3 tablespoons of the butter with the oil in a heavy 10-inch skillet
over medium temp. Saute the onion until golden. Add the garlic and ham;
cook 3 mins. Stir in the broccoli flowerets and spaghetti; toss until well
coated with the mixture. Remove from heat.

2- Beat the eggs in a large bowl until light. Add the broccoli mixture and
all but 2 tablespoons of the Parmesan.

3- Melt 1 tablespoon of butter in the same skillet over medium heat. Pour
in the broccoli-egg mixture. Immediately reduce the heat to low; cook,
without stirring, 20 minutes.

4- Using a long spatula, carefully loosen the edges of the frittata and run
the spatula underneath to loosen the bottom. Place a shallow plate over the
skillet and quickly invert the fritata onto it.

5- Melt the remaining 1 tablespoon butter in the skillet over medium-low
heat. Carefully slide the frittata back into the pan. Sprinkle it with the
crushed pepper and the remaining cheese. Cook 5 minutes longer. Serve (from
4 to 6) from the pan, in wedges at any temperature, "This is the very
best Italian fritata [Bert had] ever sampled."
