  1. How much spaghetti and how much tomato sauce? I’m confused you the “8oz cooked spaghetti with tomato sauce”
    Thanks, love your recipes!

    1. Maya, I’ve updated the recipe. I just made this for breakfast and it was delicious. You can add more spagetti and sauce if you prefer. I think having just a little adds a lot to the frittata. As an option, sometimes I toss in a few cut up sun-dried tomatoes. The possibilities are endless. YUM!!! 🙂
