Low Salicylate Pasta Frittata

by | Apr 26, 2022

So, you know how leftover pasta always tastes so darn good? Like noticeably better than the night before good? Science says this has to do with chemical reactions continueing to occur long after the initial cook has ceased. Alternatively, the joy of postday reheats may simply come down to sesnory fatigue; eating a reheated dish vs one you have been smelling and tasting for a while already. Either way, turning my leftover pasta into a cheesy, eggy frittata seemed like a pretty stellar idea. Turns out I was right.
