This slow cooker spaghetti frittata makes a satisfying supper, especially when served with a green salad. It would also be delicious for breakfast, brunch or lunch.
Made with bits of chopped pepperoni or ham, peas and cooked spaghetti, it’s held together with beaten eggs and is a delicious way to celebrate National Egg Month!
Did you know that May is National Egg Month?
I didn’t until I was contacted by the folks at Eggland’s Best Eggs about participating in their 2014 Eggland’s Best Recipe Contest.
Eggland’s Best will be accepting original recipes through their website between May 5th and July 31st. One Grand Prize Winner will receive $10,000 and a one year supply of EB eggs. Category winners will receive a cash prize of $1,000 and a six-month supply of EB eggs.
How great is that? They’re also providing a giveaway.
I’m a big fan of eggs. They are easy, healthy, delicious and extremely versatile. I may be an outlier among Weight Watchers – a woman who eats mostly whole eggs instead of egg whites and/or egg white based egg products!
Did you know that the majority of vitamins and nutrients of an egg are found in the yolk? Compared to ordinary eggs, EB eggs have:
- Four times more vitamin D
- More than double the omega-3s
- Ten times more vitamin E
- 25% less saturated fat
Skinny on Slow Cooker Spaghetti Frittata
This slow cooker spaghetti frittata is an easy, healthy, delicious way to use up leftover spaghetti or other shape pasta. Think of this recipe as a template and use whatever meat and/or vegetable you think would work together and taste good.
I served it with a salad of mixed greens, sliced strawberries and orange sections tossed in a simple vinaigrette. And then enjoyed the leftovers for lunch throughout the week.
Each serving has 243 calories and *6 Weight Watchers Points Plus.
Slow Cooker Spaghetti Frittata is definitely something I’ll make again.
