  • 100g noodles (any type you prefer)
  • 5 eggs
  • Salt, to taste
  • Green onions, chopped
  • Parsley, chopped
  • 1 tomato, chopped
  • 100g hard cheese (preferably Dutch cheese, grated)
  • Olive oil, for cooking
  • Canned green peas, drained


  1. Cook the Noodles:
    • Bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Add the noodles and cook according to package instructions until al dente. Drain and set aside.
  2. Prepare the Egg Mixture:
    • In a large mixing bowl, crack the eggs and beat them well. Season with salt.
    • Add the chopped green onions, parsley, and the grated cheese to the beaten eggs. Mix well to combine all the ingredients.
  3. Cook the Tomato:
    • Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the chopped tomato and sauté until the tomatoes are soft and release their juices.
  4. Combine Ingredients:
    • Add the cooked noodles and green peas to the skillet with the tomatoes. Stir to combine and spread the mixture evenly in the pan.
    • Pour the egg mixture over the noodles in the skillet, ensuring it evenly covers all the noodles and fillings.
  5. Cook the Frittata:
    • Reduce the heat to low, cover the skillet with a lid, and let the frittata cook for about 5-7 minutes, or until the eggs are set and the bottom is lightly golden.
    • Optionally, you can finish cooking the top under a broiler for a few minutes to get a slightly crispy top.
  6. Serve:
    • Slide the frittata out of the skillet onto a serving plate. Allow it to cool for a few minutes before slicing.
    • Serve warm with additional fresh parsley sprinkled on top if desired.
