Macaroni Frittata

Macaroni Frittata is a great way to use leftover macaroni noodles. Leftover spaghetti noodles can be used as well. We sometimes have a macaroni frittata for a meal at home, but most often we use them for lunches.

Due to Paul’s work, he likes a lunch he can eat with his hands out of a bag, something that does not require a fork or spoon. This can make it challenging to find variety for his lunches. He eats a lot of peanut butter sandwiches and black bean burritos. A macaroni frittata gives him a change and frittatas are one of the few ways he will eat cold eggs. Once a macaroni frittata is cooled, it is firm enough and will hold together well enough to eat with your hands out of a lunch baggie

Adding ¼ cup of shredded mozzarella cheese will make the frittata special, but we usually do not put cheese in to save on the food budget.
