- 1 1/4 cups fat-free egg substitute
- 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Preparation time 20mins
Cooking time 140mins
Whisk together egg substitute, Parmesan, and black pepper in large bowl. Stir in peas, bacon, and roasted pepper. Add spaghetti, stirring to combine.
Generously spray ceramic insert of 5- or 6-quart slow cooker with nonstick spray. Pour in egg mixture, making sure pasta is submerged. Sprinkle mozzarella over egg mixture, leaving 1-inch border all around to prevent frittata from sticking. Cover and cook until knife inserted into center of frittata comes out clean, about 2 hours on high.
Remove lid and lift out ceramic insert; let stand 15 minutes. With rubber spatula, loosen edges of frittata. Cut crosswise into thick slices. With inverted long metal spatula, transfer slices to platter. Serve hot, warm, or at room temperature.
