The kitchen, garden, house chores and organization were not her areas of expertise or interest, at all. Give her something to sell and her innate talent surfaced. She could sell a camera to a blind person. But that’s another story. You’re here for the leftover pasta frittata and we’ll get there.</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span lang="EN-US"><br /></span><span lang="EN-US"></span><br /><a name='more'></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-6FHlPmCXRTA/UjJ3OGpCLXI/AAAAAAAAMrg/fU_bJtW4Wfc/s1600/DANISH+DOUGH+-+PASTA+FRITTATA+062.JPG" imageanchor="1" style="clear: left; float: left; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-6FHlPmCXRTA/UjJ3OGpCLXI/AAAAAAAAMrg/fU_bJtW4Wfc/s1600/DANISH+DOUGH+-+PASTA+FRITTATA+062.JPG" /></a></div><span lang="EN-US"><br /></span></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"></div><div style="text-align: justify;">When your mother doesn’t cook, lunch and dinner, the latter especially since I went to school all day, can be quite challenging. Or not, depending on how you look at it, because as kids we got to eat all those no-no foods, like hot dogs and mashed potatoes (no bun and not real potatoes…), buttered rice or french fries with fried eggs on top, fritters of every kind, stuff like that. These last were usually made with leftovers. Just like this frittata, which in those times was really a tortilla, the Spanish version, which implies flipping the thing over, with the aid of a plate but most often a flat pot cover, to cook it on both sides in the same skillet on the stove. Let me tell you there was much pride on how well you flipped the tortilla back then.&nbsp;</div></div><div class="MsoNormal"><div style="text-align: justify;"><span lang="EN-US">A frittata is finished in the oven, which makes it oh.so.simple!<o:p></o:p></span><br /><span lang="EN-US"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-cupQ1Eo9kQk/UjJ3PjG-w9I/AAAAAAAAMr4/2Zs8I5hRGfs/s1600/DANISH+DOUGH+-+PASTA+FRITTATA+124.JPG" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-cupQ1Eo9kQk/UjJ3PjG-w9I/AAAAAAAAMr4/2Zs8I5hRGfs/s1600/DANISH+DOUGH+-+PASTA+FRITTATA+124.JPG" /></a></div><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">Leftover pasta tortilla was her signature dish in many ways, together with roasted meat and potatoes, and that&nbsp; almost made up her entire repertoire, a discussion we had a few times this past months <a href="http://www.vintagekitchennotes.com/2013/08/sweet-blackberry-cheesecake-ice-cream.html">when she stayed at my house</a>, because she claims she actually cooked quite a lot and I just laugh. She made white sauce too, sorry forgot about that. And mixed it with the <i>leftover pasta</i>, into the oven and called it au gratin pasta. In case you’re siding with her on this, the sauce for the pasta was a can of tomato sauce.</div></div><div class="MsoNormal"><div style="text-align: justify;"><span lang="EN-US">Anyway, this frittata made with the charred corn, asparagus and brown butter breadcrumbs is to honor that childhood meal that I loved.
