Pasta omelette (frittata di pasta)

You never know how much pasta should you cook? You're never sure if you're too hungry and you put waay to much pasta in the pan? I have a recipe today that will help you to deal with all your leftover pasta. Because food is a blessing and we should not waste it! 

leftover pasta (with any kind of sauce, I had some pasta with zucchini and tomato)
2 tblsp parmesan cheese
5 eggs
2 boiled potatoes
1 fresh chili (if you don't like spicy food, leave it)
olive oil

Mash the boiled potatoes, add the eggs and mix well. Add the leftover pasta, cut the chili and add it with salt and pepper (according to your taste). Mix well (you should have something like the picture above).
Put some olive oil in a non stick pan and wait a few minutes until it becomes warm. Put the mixture in the pan and cook until it's crispy on one side. Then help yourself with the top of the pan to turn it over. Cook on the other side until it's crispy also there and serve still hot.

If you fell you don't have enough pasta to do it, add the vegetables you prefer. It's a great way to reuse the already cooked food and it's tasty as well! :)
