Who doesn’t like pasta anyways?

Cured Sausage

In this particular recipe, I put cooked Italian sausage that was spicy but you don’t have to do hot if you don’t like it. 

It takes hardly any time at all to make this and the cost is fairly cheap which makes it economical for most families on a budget.

Served hot or cold you can add a nice tomato, fennel and chickpea salad with fresh basil alongside your Italian Pasta Frittata cut into wedges like a pizza.

Parmesan_Cheese Parmigiano-Reggiano

I like to sprinkle freshly grated authentic Italian Parmigiano Reggiano over the top just before serving it to my guests.

Pasta Pie Flipping Instructions

I made a Spanish Potato Tortilla using the same concept which shows step by step how to prepare and flip the pie if you would rather see me in action.

Please take cautiion on the flipping part of the recipe as it can get a little hot so make sure you use a dishcloth and oven mitts.

I would recommend a heavy round dish or a charger plate which is bigger than the circumference of your frying pan whilst flipping it over the sink.

Take your time there is no rush, once you flip the frying pan it should easily slide on the plate where you then slide it right back in the pan to cook the other side until golden brown.

If you can do this with another person present in case you need assistance.

Rapini and Sausage Pasta Frittata

Serves: 10-12 people

Cook:  Medium heat on your stove-top

Cost: Between $8-$9 depending on where you live and the cost of items. That’s about $0.75 each slice for a $9.00 pie.

You can also make it even cheaper by eliminating the meat and using just vegetables.

If you want to get fancy you can add spinach or Italian rapini to the pie.

We’ve done it as you will see in the photo below and it tastes delicious and is nutritious for the whole family.
