Baked Frittata with Broccoli and pasta (SRC June 2014 reveal)

And the June SRC (Secret Recipe Club) reveal is here!!!


A reminder for those who haven’t seen my previous SRC postings (Apple, Cheese & Beer bread from Edisia’s Notebook, Cinnamon Swirl Buns from The Heritage Cook , and finally – Chocolate Chip Banana Bread from Tasty Gardener ) – the concept revolves around a group of food bloggers who, on a monthly basis get allocated another’s blog to look at – find a recipe – recreate it and blog about it before a certain date.

This particular date is linked to your groups reveal date… and today is the REVEAL for Group A!!

This is my 4th SRC reveal … and my 4th new blog to check out… and I loved reading about Mellissa from A Fit and Spicy Life, who describes herself as a city girl married to a country boy living in a space somewhere in between, along with their 2 dogs. She shares a passion for cooking & drinking wine (kindred souls, I tell you) plus she still finds time to workout (the latter, unfortunately, I do not… or at least I don’t “actively” try to make time for).

Looking for a recipe to recreate from her blog was easy… in fact – I had so many fantastic choices that I didn’t know where to begin… so I sat down quietly, gave it a bit of a methodical thought and finally decided to use ingredients that were in our fridge already… namely, broccoli & eggs!!! The rest, as they say – was easy!

Mellissa’s recipe for Baked Frittata with Spaghetti and Broccoli hit the nail on the head for me! It was a mid-week meal dream = easy to make, easily accessible ingredients and ready in a jiffy! I did however substitute the spaghetti for small macaroni pasta, adjusted the proportions and added more cream… and, when re-making next time – I would even add baby tomatoes & diced ham.
