Add some pasta to a frittata for a different take on this classic dish. The green sauce utilizes parsley and basil for a pop of color.


  • 1 lb. Barilla Farfalle
  • 12 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 6 cups diced onion
  • 21 oz. diced zucchini
  • 1 1/2 lb. diced fresh button mushrooms
  • as needed salt
  • as needed black pepper
  • 24 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 6 oz. grated Parmesan cheese
  • 12 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 3 cloves peeled garlic
  • 3/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 18 leaves fresh basil


Step 1

Cook the Barilla® pasta for 1 minute less than the time indicated on the package. Drain pasta and drizzle with 3 Tbsp. of the olive oil to prevent from sticking. Place pasta flat on sheet trays or hotel pans and cool in a blast chiller. Alternatively, cool it down in a walk-in cooler. Store in zip lock bags or sealed plastic container; refrigerate and use within several hours.

Step 2

For each 8 servings, heat a 12-inch skillet with 3 Tbsp. oil and saute 2 cups onion until translucent. Add 7 oz. zucchini and 8 oz. mushrooms and saute for 2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Add 2 2/3 cups pasta and saute for 1 minute.

Step 3

In a bowl, whisk together 8 eggs, 1/2 cup milk, 1/2 cup cheese, and season with salt and pepper. Pour over the pasta mixture and cook for 2 minutes.

Step 4

Put the pan in a 400-degree oven and bake until the eggs are cooked through and slightly browned. Flip the frittata onto a cutting board. Cut it into 8 wedges.

Step 5

In a blender, combine the oil and garlic for the salsa. Add the parsley, basil, and season with salt and pepper. Puree until smooth. Serve 1 piece of frittata with a drizzle of salsa verde.
