You'll need:

  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 cup of ham - cut in small cubes
  • 1/4 cup of cream
  • 1/8 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon of pepper
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 1 1/2 cups cooked angel hair pasta
  • 1 cup blanched broccoli flowerets
  • 3/4 cup of parmesan cheese - grated
  • 1/2 cup of chopped parsley
  • 3 tablespoons of butter
  • Some adult help


  • Measuring cups and spoons
  • A medium-sized bowl
  • A whisk
  • A non-stick omelet pan with an oven-safe handle*
  • A flexible silicone spatula
    1. Heat the oven to 350 degrees.
    2. When the oven gets to the right temperature, whisk together the eggs, the salt, the pepper and the cream.
    3. Add the parsley, the baking powder and the broccoli. Mix it together so that the broccoli is lightly covered with egg.
    4. Melt the butter in the pan on low heat.
    5. When the butter is melted add the angel hair pasta. Spread the pasta across the bottom of the pan so it forms a flat layer.
    6. Quickly, pour the egg mixture in. Don't stir. You want the pasta to stay on the bottom.
    7. Cook until the fritatta starts to pull away from the sides of the pan.
    8. Ask your helper to put the pan into the oven. Bake the fritatta at 350 degrees for 6 minutes or until the top is slightly brown and the eggs are totally firm.

    * Note you can use a cast iron skillet if you don't have a non-stick pan. You may need a little more melted butter to make sure the fritatta doesn't stick.
