  1. Heat half the oil in a medium non-stick frying pan and add the garlic and onion. Cook for 2-3 mins, until softened. Using your hands, squeeze out as much moisture from the courgettes as possible. Add them to the pan and cook for a further 3-4 mins, until tender. Spoon the vegetables into a large bowl.

  2. Stir in the parsley, cheese sauce and spaghetti and season. Beat the eggs and stir into the mixture.

  3. Heat remaining oil in the frying pan and tip in the spaghetti mixture. Level it out with the back of a spoon and cook over a medium heat for 3-5 mins, until almost set.

  4. Transfer to a hot grill for 2-3 mins, until golden. Leave to cool in the pan for 5 mins, then cut into wedges and serve.

Really disappointed with this recipe, I found it quite tasteless... apart from the garlic! If I ever make it again, I will certainly add some other flavour, such as bacon!

Just made this for an unplanned supper as it uses store cupboard ingredients, and loved it. Made my own cheese sauce, and also added in some sliced mushrooms and fried them with the courgette (the grated courgette by the way pretty much disappears when the omelette is cooked and doesn't really taste, so for those who want their 5 a day but don't like courgette needn't worry!). Then also added some chopped up grilled bacon at the mixing stage (suggest ham would work well too). Really tasty and filling.

Quick and easy but tastes better when left for about half an hour rather than just 5 minutes.

Have to say, I wasnt over enthusiastic about this recipe. Hate courettes, so they werent an option. Made my own cheese sauce and added bacon . It turned out lovely, and the texture with the cheese sauce was very creamy. Excellent.

Quite nice, a little unsure of the texture, but is probably something I'd make again to use up left over vegetables, etc

This is based on an old Italian recipe. The difference being it is made as a casserole using raw eggs turned into the cooked spaghetti, instead of the cheese sauce, then baked for approx 20mins on 180 degrees. Any ingredients can be used, cheese, bacon bits, tomatoes, spices etc. The list is only as good as your imagination & is ideal for leftovers.

Brilliant! Simple and tasty and a recipe I wouldn't have thought of myself, although with hindsight the spaghetti is only a variant of carbohydrate like the potato in a Spanish omelette. A very flexible base menu for incorporating left-overs. I've tried two variants with sausage and roast chicken, both were delicious. I stirred a teaspoon of Harissa paste into the chicken version and that gave the flavour a nice lift if you like a bit of chilli warmth in your food, as we do.
