  • 150g cherry tomatoes

  1. Heat a 25cm ovenproof frying pan over medium-high heat. Preheat the grill on high.
  2. While the pan and grill heat up, whisk together the eggs and cream in a jug. Season. Add 3/4 cup cheddar. Crush the garlic.
  3. Once pan is hot, pour in the oil, swirling to coat. Add noodles and garlic. Cook, stirring, for 2 minutes or until noodles start to soften.
  4. Pour the egg mixture into the pan and shake a little. Cook for 3 minutes or until frittata starts to set around the edges.
  5. While the frittata cooks, cut the tomatoes in half and transfer to a bowl. Pick the basil leaves and add to the bowl. Season.
  6. Sprinkle the frittata with the remaining cheddar. Place the pan under the grill for 3-4 minutes or until set and golden. Top with the tomato and basil salad. Drizzle over extra oil, season and serve.
