Easy Pasta Frittata

This is a perfect brunch, breakfast or even quick dinner dish!

9 large eggs
1 c. packed spinach leaves, stemmed (or I just used frozen chopped spinach, cooked, about 3/4 c.)
2 scallions(green onions), trimmed and sliced
3 strips cooked bacon, chopped
4 tbsp. sun-dried tomatoes (if using the kind packed in oil, drain oil)
1 c. cooked spaghetti
1/2 c. Monterrey Jack cheese
1 tbsp. butter
1 tbsp light olive oil
2 tbsp. grated parmesan cheese

Beat eggs in large bowl until frothy. Add spinach, scasllionis, bacon, sun-dried tomatoes, spaghetti, and Monterrey Jack cheese. Mix well. Place an oven safe 10 inch skillet with sides at least 1 1/2 inches high over medium heat. Add butter and oil. When hot, add the egg mixture, reduce the heat to medium-low and set timer for 8 minutse. After 8 minutes, top the frittata with parmesan cheese and place it(in the skillet) on middle rack of oven. Cook for 7 to 8 minutes or until the eggs are set and the top is lightly browned. Using a potholder, remove skillet from oven. Cut into wedges and serve. Accompany with salsa, if desired.

Note: Remember when its done, that the skillet is hot(handle included). I forgot and grabbed the handle to carry it over to the table. Ouch. Keep potholder over handle to remind yourself!
