Food Storage Friday: Pasta & Squash Frittata

How's your garden coming? Mine is small but good- we've been harvesting little cherry tomatoes almost daily, and the basil is growing with no problems too. (so go plant some if you haven't yet, it grows fast!) You can check with your county extension website to see what will still grow where you live. Yesterday I suddenly noticed we have 2 big zucchini and a couple good sized summer squashes already! So tonight's dinner is coming from our garden, I love it but I wonder if the kids will eat it...

Pasta & Squash Frittata
1 TB oil
2 zucchini, sliced 1/4" thick
2 yellow squash, sliced 1/4" thick
1/2 onion chopped
10oz pkg rainbow rotini pasta
6 eggs
1 cup mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
Cook pasta according to package directions.
In a large, oven safe skillet, (dutch oven style) saute zucchini, squash and onion in oil till softened, cool.
In large mixing bowl combine eggs and cheeses, then stir in cooked pasta.
Pour pasta mixture over veggies in pan and mix well. Cook on stove top until bottom is cooked, then place in oven and broil at 350 for an additional 10 minutes.
Serve with warmed spaghetti sauce on top or the side.

This recipe sounds great! After looking at your families' blogs I feel like I should plant a garden. I may consider it next summer!!!
