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!
