It is time for my second challenge in the Kraft Fresh Take Flavor Makers program. This time I was challenged to incorporate whole wheat into the recipe and make something in the skillet that could be eaten at breakfast, lunch or dinner. I initially thought of a skillet pizza, but I eventually settled on this Ham and Cheese Pasta Frittata.
We eat a lot of quiche for dinner, but I rarely make a frittata. To incorporate the whole wheat into the dish, I used some whole wheat pasta. The Classic Four Cheese Fresh Take made this dish super easy. I didn’t have to measure the cheese or breadcrumbs! The frittata cooks for 10 minutes on the stove and is finished off in the oven. This only took about 30 minutes from start to finish. Waiting for the water to boil was the hardest part of the whole recipe. (you can save time and use leftover pasta) We were both super impressed with this dish. It had great flavor and was so simple to make.
Ham and Cheese Pasta Frittata
4 oz whole wheat spaghetti
2 Tbsp milk
1 Tbsp dijon mustard
1 cup diced ham
1 packet Kraft Classic Four Cheese Fresh Take kit
4 Tbsp butter
Preheat oven to 400.
Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain and toss with 2 Tbsp of butter.
Whisk together eggs, milk, mustard, salt and pepper. Stir in ham, cheese and pasta.
In a large oven safe non-stick skillet, melt 2 Tbsp butter. Sprinkle half of the bread crumbs in the pan. Pour egg mixture in skillet. Top egg mixture with remaining bread crumbs. Reduce heat to low. Cook undisturbed for 10 minutes. Transfer skillet to the oven and cook 10 more minutes.
