Spaghetti omelette: a fantastic traditional dish!
The spaghetti omelette is an excellent solution for using up leftover spaghetti, and is “mandatory” for the Easter Monday trip.
The spaghetti omelette is so good that to prepare it we don’t have to wait for spaghetti left over. However, it can be made with leftover spaghetti with any seasoning. Just make sure the pasta sauce match well with the ingredients you use for the omelette.
In the recipe we used provola and smoked bacon, if you prefer, you can also use their sweet versions. Furthermore, you can substitute cheese and cured meat to your liking, for example you can use fontina cheese and salami. Attention, the weight of the spaghetti is that when boiled, not when dried.
Preparation of the spaghetti omelette
- Wash the parsley dry it well with absorbent kitchen paper and finely chop the leaves.
- Cut the smoked scamorza into cubes the size of about a centimeter.
- Cut the smoked bacon into small cubes.
- Take a large bowl and open the eggs in it. Beat them lightly, then add the parsley, grated Parmesan, smoked scamorza cheese, smoked bacon, milk and pepper. Do not salt, the ingredients are already very tasty, and even the pasta already has at least its cooking salt, if not its original seasoning.
- Mix very well. Add the spaghetti and mix gently.
- Take a large non-stick pan and pour the EVO oil. Place it on medium heat and bring the oil to temperature.
- Pour the egg and spaghetti mixture and distribute it evenly in the pan. Now you no longer have to mix, every now and then just give the pan a few strokes to detach the omelette from the bottom.
- Cover and cook for ten minutes over medium low heat.
- Now you have to turn the omelette, and you can do it with the help of the lid. When turning, press the lid very well onto the pan using a kitchen glove or a clean tea towel so as not to burn yourself.
- Put the omelette back in the pan and cook it without a lid for another five minutes. Give every now and then a few hits on the pan in order to detach the omelette from the bottom.
- Remove from the heat and put the omelette on a plate. You can enjoy it warm or cold. In many regions of Italy it is the typical dish of picnics, especially that of Easter Monday.

We recommend keeping the maximum 1-2 days the fried spaghetti in the refrigerator, well covered by the transparent film. We do not recommend freezing in the freezer.
