Looking for a meatless breakfast idea? Then check out this herbed pasta and green onions cheesy frittata recipe that’s ready in just 35 minutes!
oz uncooked vermicelli, broken in half
cup fat-free cholesterol-free egg product (from 8-oz. carton) or 4 eggs, lightly beaten
cup fat-free (skim) milk
teaspoon dried oregano leaves
teaspoon ground red pepper (cayenne)
medium green onions, finely chopped (1/2 cup)
teaspoon olive or canola oil
cup shredded reduced-fat sharp Cheddar cheese (3 oz)
Cook vermicelli as directed on package. Drain; rinse with hot water.
Meanwhile, in small bowl, mix egg product, milk, 1/2 teaspoon of the salt, the oregano and ground red pepper until well blended. Stir in onions.
In 10-inch nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Spread cooked vermicelli in hot skillet; pour egg product mixture evenly over top. Reduce heat to medium-low; cover and cook 13 to 15 minutes or until center is almost set.
Remove skillet from heat. Sprinkle remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and the cheese over vermicelli mixture. Cover; let stand 2 minutes or until egg mixture is set and cheese is melted. Serve from skillet, or run pancake turner around edge of skillet to loosen and slide out onto serving plate. Cut into wedges. If desired, garnish with additional chopped green onions.
"My kids love pasta, and you can use any pasta shape you have on hand in this yummy egg dish. For a quick (and neat) way to cut this omelet into wedges, I use my pizza cutter." Sharon
