Mature Cheddar Pasta Frittata using Spinneyfields Grated Mature Cheddar

Method for the Mature Cheddar Pasta Frittata

Cook the pasta in boiling water until al dente. Add peas for final minute of cooking. Drain and rinse with cold water. Stir in the red peppers and sundried tomatoes. This can be made in advance.

In a jug, blend the eggs, milk, herbs and mustard and season with black pepper.

Melt the butter in a high-sided frying pan. Layer the ingredients as follows: add half the pasta mix and spread over the base of the pan, pour over half of the egg mix and add half of the Spinneyfields Grated Mature Cheddar. Then repeat with the remaining ingredients, finishing with the remaining Mature Cheddar and the grated Formaggio cheese on the top of the frittata.

Cook on the hob over a low heat until set, about 10- 12 minutes.

For a real crunchy treat, try topping with a crunchy cheese and breadcrumb blend

Brown off under a pre-heated grill.

Allow to cool slightly before slicing into wedges.
