What to do with all those leftovers?

It's a Friday night and we are all home from a busy day. We rarely go out and still have all these leftovers in the frig but don't really want the re-heat and eat dinner. It's time for a frittata!
This frittata had 1 bell pepper chopped, 4 scallions chopped, 2 leftover cooked chicken breasts cubed, leftover spaghetti carbonara, pepper jack cheese grated, a little half & half and about 8 eggs.

Placed the eggs in a bowl with about 1/2 cup of shredded cheese and a dollop of half & half and beat well. In my pan I cooked the pepper, scallions and chicken until peppers were a bit wilted. Added the pasta and tossed until warmed and well limp (you know cold pasta is like a brick). Added the egg mixture (do not stir!!) and cooked on the stove for just a couple of minutes. Put more shredded cheese on top and put in 375 oven for about 15 minutes or done in center.

Voila! A totally new thing from the old and now new leftovers for the next morning.
