Method

  1. Heat oven to 190C/fan 170C/gas 5. Grease a 1.2 litre baking dish with the olive oil.

  2. Cook the pasta in salted boiling water in a large pan for 8 mins. Add all the vegetables and cook for another 2-3 mins until the pasta is tender and the vegetables slightly softened. Drain, then tip into the baking dish and mix well.

  3. Beat together the eggs and milk in a jug and add the thyme. Mix the two cheeses together and add most of it to the egg mixture, then season. Pour into the baking dish, stir gently, then scatter the rest of the cheese on top. Bake for 35-40 mins until set and golden. Cool for a few mins, then serve with a green salad.

I don't know what some people did (or didn't do) to make this dish bland. Did they miss out some of the ingredients or seasoning? Mine was delicious and I shall definitely make it again.

This was a hit in our family, especially my 7yo. Only change I'd make is making double as it was quite thin/shallow in the baking dish once cooked - not like the picture at all. But very tasty, not bland at all. We always use organic veg so maybe that's the difference?!

A delicious base for putting in whatever herbs or spices take your fancy. Once seasoned appropriately, it's tasty as well as nutritious. Thumbs up from me!

Don't bother with this recipe....it's absolutely awful! It lacked flavour and the egg mixture just solidified around the vegeatables and pasta but did not really make a frittata as such. I couldn't eat it and had to make myself a microwave jacket potato instead. Having said that, the dog loved it!

I made this dish last night as a quick dinner. It wasn't until I had put it in the oven, I decided to read the reviews. I was a little worried it wouldn't be nice as most comments said very bland.

To my surprise my family really enjoyed it, I had added a little salt, pepper and cumin pepper to my sauce. I also made home made garlic bread which made it even better :)

I made this dish last week, and the only change I made was to cook the pasta in chicken broth.

Our family determined this meal was very, very bland. And we're not going to be making this again.

I added some cherry tomatoes and a chopped chilli. In retrospect, I should have left the seeds in the chilli, because it didn't add any heat. I agree that the dish is a little bland, but I think more layers of flavour could be added by including ingredients such as garlic, pesto, olives or Harissa, for example. The recipe is a good basis for whatever you fancy. As far as quantities go, mine served three with a green salad, one cold for lunch the next day and canapés for two with olives and drinks in the evening. A good, flexible dish.

Not very impressed. Taste-wise a bit bland. Don't think I'll make it again.

love this recipe. first recipe ive tried of the internet! would reccommend. i added turkey thigh as i like meat with my meals, was extra tasty next time will try bacon, although this is a recipe that can be made with anything, as for the quantities i have to feed a family of 6 and found with just a little bit extra i fed em all fine as i added a side to it to make a meal.

This was tasty but not really a frittata! If you're thinking of a quick pasta dish this is a good one to use.

A very easy and quick recipe, a good use of vegetables.
not quite enough flavoring

it was ok. nothing special. i doubled the quantities and it fed 5..just. as it should of then fed 8 the quantities are way out. i will probably make again but will need some additions. i might take the idea of chorizo

This one is great! Super-easy and a good way to get your vegetables. The first time I made it I felt it needed a bit of a 'kick', so I made it again adding garlic granules and chilli flakes to the egg mixture. It was delicious!

Tried this for the first time this evening and I really enjoyed it. I was making it for myself only so did tweek the measurements a bit. I agree with the other comments that the quantities do seem a little off. 85g pasta would never go around 4 people and fill then up! 75g is considered one portion. The recipe is interchangable with so many other ingredients and it is definitiely one I will be making again. Definitely going to try mushroom next time and I wonder how it would be with sliced potato instead of pasta, options are endless!

Really enjoyed this, I spiced it up a bit after reading some of the comments here. Also added some chorizo for a change and that was great.

It was a little bland and the quantities were not enough to feed four people. However, I would cook this again and would recomend it, as long as you could find a way of making it more flavoursome

This was a great meal, but not enough pasta for 4 people!

This was very yummy, we added some chopped frankfurters too, this helped with hubby who likes meat at every meal. Had with some crusty bread. This is on my list as a favourite now.
