Take A Bite Of: Linguine and Proscuitto Mini Frittatas


Something warm, delicious, filling, and super easy to make? Look no further. I love these for family breakfast as much as I love them for brunches when we have people over. My favorite Chef, Giada, shared this on one of her shows. Buon Apetito!

Linguine and Proscuitto Mini Frittatas
Ingredients
  • 1/2 pound linguine pasta
  • 7 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk ( I use 2%)
  • 1/4 cup cream
  • 1/2 cup mascarpone cheese
  • 6 ounces diced prosciutto
  • 5 ounces smoked mozzarella cheese, diced (1 cup diced)
  • 1/2 cup grated Asiago cheese
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
  • And you need a 12 cup muffin tin
Directions:

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over high heat. Add the pasta and cook until tender but still firm to the bite, stirring occasionally, about 8 to 10 minutes. Drain the pasta in a colander. While the pasta is still in the colander, use kitchen sheers to cut the linguine into smaller pieces. The pasta should measure about 3 cups.

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Grease the muffin tin.

In a blender combine the eggs, milk, cream, and mascarpone cheese. Blend until well combined. Transfer the mixture to a large bowl. Add the cut pasta, prosciutto, mozzarella cheese, Asiago cheese, parsley, garlic, salt, pepper, and nutmeg. Stir until the ingredients are combined.

Using a 1/3 cup measure, fill each of the muffin tins until both the pasta and liquid are at the top.

Bake until firm and cooked through, about 30 to 35 minutes. Let cool for 3 minutes before removing from the tin. Arrange on a serving platter and serve.

Sounds lovely!
I made a pork roast with a raspberry, Merlot glaze and butternut squash the other night that was to die for. I'd give you a recipe but I made it up as I went along....

Eyeglasses & Endzones said...

Yum! Im in a cooking class that could have used this recipe this week with "Italian" theme!!! ;)

Now, if only I could get someone over here to make that for me...that would be dreamy!

Rita/Fighting Off Frumpy said...

We must have very similar tastes in food ... because every single thing you've posted since I've been reading you has sounded HEAVENLY!!!

Not good on my dieting efforts, though ... :)

The Gman said...

while im a very hip cook and profession eater...frittatas, not so much. But with prosciutto AND three types of cheese...NOW WE ARE GETTIN' SOMEWHERE!

M-Cat said...

If I were a cheese lover, this would put me in heaven. Sadly, I'll stick with my spaghetti and meatballs. I know, I know, I'm so lame!!

Hannah Miet said...

The foodie in me is having an orgasm.

The Consummate Hostess said...

Sounds delicious! My kitchen is under construction right now but when it is completed I am going to give this a try. Thanks for sharing!

Kristina P. said...

Sounds amazingly delicious!

Pricilla said...

They look yummy.

Sadly, I am eating pumpkin pie for breakfast. I left the last piece for the hubby but he didn't eat it and it was calling my name.

Scrappy Girl said...

How cute and yummy looking!

Hollyrocks said...

Freaking YUM! I haven't had breakfast yet either....

The Boob Nazi said...

Ummm, yes, please.

ScrewedUp20Something said...

Giada is my favourite chef too. I have all of her cookbooks and her recipes have yet to fail me. I especially like her chocolate tiramisu, despite the fact that it's really time consuming, it's so worth it!

BJ_Mama said...

Now I have to go find some food....that made me hungry!

Happy SITS Saturday Sharefest!

Existential Waitress said...

I love Giada and this sounds soooo good!

Brandi said...

I ♥ Giada. This sounds soooo good. The salad I'm having for lunch just isn't going to do it now. Thanks. :P

Beth Dunn said...

Two Normal Moms said...

Thanks for stopping by and checking in!

HalfAsstic.com said...

Man! I love the recipes you post! This is wonderful sounding and will have to be done soon!

kyslp said...

That sounds really good. Maybe I can pay someone to make it for me? I have been a domestic failure since my love affair with the internetz blossomed.

Cee said...

ooo those sound really good right now!

Leah Rubin said...

Another excellent reason to resent my being lactarded...

Wish I could eat these!

But hey, as we speak I have cooling your chocolate-chip brownie bars, complete with ganache! (I'm willing to chance the whipping cream in the ganache thing for this special occasion-- my step-daughter's birthday party.) I'll tell you tomorrow if they are as big a hit as I suspect they will be!

Thanks for sharing such great recipes!

WhisperingWriter said...

Delicious!

I am a huge fan of carbs.

A Lawyer Mom's Musings said...

After I finish my reading, I will forward this recipe to my husband ASAP so he can print.

Unlke most other recipes I stumble upon, this is one I think I might actually pull off without anyone holding my hand. I am a wretched cook and am always thrilled to find a good recipe I think I can follow. Thanks, girl.

P.S. Michelle Rene over at "It Must be a Full Moon" has posted a delicious-sounding recipe for beef strog, FYI.

OMG- Where do you get your inspiration? This looks so YUMMMY! One of these days I'm going to have to give one of these a shot. :)

Blogging Mama Andrea said...

It sounds fantastic. Too many ingredients not already in my cupboards though I'm writing it down anyway. Next time you make them let me know, I'll bring the kids.

LadyFi said...

Definitely delicious - without the meat, that is... but far beyond my modest cooking skills.

Veronica Lee said...

Hi! I'm visiting from MBC. Great blog.

sheila said...

OMG. Would I have to share this if I made it? Decisions, decisions. :)

I'm using a strata recipe to bring to my church MOMs group in a few weeks, but I LOVE the idea of making them in individual muffin cups!! So cute!!! And it would be a great idea for a bridal or baby shower too!
