The Secret's in the Sauce

I am constantly on the prowl for fresh new breakfast recipes.  I love to find a recipe and then tweak it to suit my fancy.  One of my favorite sources is Taste of Home Magazine. It is the one and only magazine I actually subscribe to.  I found this Pasta Frittata recipe quite a while ago but kept forgetting to give it a try, mostly because I hadn't found the time to tweak it.  When I finally made it for the first time I had vegetarian guests in the house so I substituted red bell pepper for the chopped ham and it came out so good, it's the only way I make it now.  I serve a breakfast meat on the side.  I know, I know, you're thinking pasta for breakfast?!  Trust me, it works!

Pasta Frittata

1 - 2 tblsp olive oil
salt and pepper
8 eggs
1 bunch green onions (chopped)
1 package Zesty Italian salad dressing (dry)
2 cups cooked spaghetti pasta
2 cups chopped broccoli
2 cups chopped red bell pepper
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

Whisk together eggs, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper, set aside.

In a skillet, sautee green onions with olive oil.  Add in veggies, a bit more oil, salt and pepper to taste.  Stir in cooked pasta. Pour in egg mixture, sprinkle in shredded cheese, blend together.

Pour into prepared (spray with PAM) 9 x 13 pan.  Bake at 350 for about 30 - 40 minutes until golden bubbly.
