  1. Preheat the oven to gas 4, 180°C, fan 160°C. Take a nonstick 12-hole muffin tin and oil 9 of the 12 holes.
  2. Bring a large pan of salted water to the boil and cook the pasta according to pack instructions. Drain while still al dente; refresh under cool water then drain again. Put the cooled, cooked pasta, the peas and the ham matchsticks into 3 separate bowls.
  3. Transfer the beaten eggs to a jug and whisk in a little seasoning. Divide between the 9 oiled muffin tin holes, making sure an even amount goes into each. Divide the pasta, peas and ham between the muffin moulds, pushing them down into the beaten egg slightly. You can use clean hands or a spoon.
  4. Bake for about 20 minutes, until the frittatas are risen and just firm in the centre. Remove from the oven and leave to rest for 5 minutes before turning out. Serve with fresh green salad.

Freezing and defrosting guidelines

Cook, chill and then freeze well wrapped for up to a month. Defrost in the fridge overnight and warm through in a moderate oven before serving.
