Spaghetti Bolognese Frittata

Got a whole 6 days off work (after working over the Christmas hols ) so decided to try a couple of new recipes.
I made this yesterday but didn't take any photo's- I'll post a looky likey at the end with all credit to postee - I have made this one before and it's so easy ( and quick ) all the family like this one. The recipe is similar to Gino D'Campos with a few tweaks.

Serves 4-6

300g Spaghetti
1 tbspn olive oil
500g Lean Minced Beef Steak
1 Large onion finely chopped
3 Garlic cloves chopped or crushed - as you like
1 Large Carrot finely diced
400g Passata
4 Large free range eggs
100g Parmesan cheese
1 tbspn mixed herbs
Salt and pepper to taste
Rocket leaves to serve

In a large frying pan, gently fry onion and garlic until softened, add carrot and continue to fry for about 5 minutes.
Add beef mince and stir until meat is nice and brown.
Add passata, herbs and cook for about 15 minutes.
While waiting for beef to cook, cook spaghetti in a large pan of rapidly boiling salted water until just cooked.
Season meat sauce and mix in drained spaghetti. Leave to cool -  this doesn't need to be completely cold just cool enough to add the eggs.
Preheat oven to 180c / 350f / gas 4
Add eggs and cheese into the mixture and bake in the centre of the oven for about 20-30 minutes until golden on top.

This is the picture as it appears in Gino's book and the recipe pretty much comes out spot on.
