Pasta frittata is a popular way to use up pasta leftovers in Italy.
But what does the word frittata mean? There is an Italian expression ‘hai fatto una frittata’ which means that you have done a mess (figuratively or literally).
The word frittata comes from the verb ‘friggere’ which means to fry. These days, some chefs use oven-cooking for a healthier version, however in Italy is always fried.
Pasta frittata or Italian omelette has become popular in many countries and can be found in many Italian recipe sites and nowadays in English language sites as well.
