This riff on classic pasta carbonara, a brunch-friendly frittata studded with penne and bacon, is more about the eggs and less about the pasta. It’s great served warm or at room temperature for brunch or dinner.
Make Ahead Tips
The pasta can be cooked 1 day ahead.

Didn't care for it....would choose something other than sage, it's flavour was not complimentary.. It wasn't anything like carbonara, there was not the same creamy richness at all. the pasta was a filler but didn't add anything in terms of taste. It will get eaten but I won't be making it again.
I made this for Saturday night dinner. My husband & son warmed it up the following day. Excellent! When I make it again, I may add some chopped roasted red pepper &/or chopped artichokes to add some visual interest to the dish.
I made my own salad, but followed the instructions for the frittata exactly. An AMAZING recipe and so easy to prepare! I made it for bridge night and it was gobbled up before I had a bite. Everyone raved! My husband loved it and asked that I make it on a regular basis -- I've made it twice since. A must try!
