- 425g can Lucky Star Middlecut
- 100g macaroni
- 6 eggs
- 4 Tbsp grated cheddar cheese
- Salt and ground black pepper
- Butter and oil
- 8 courgettes, trimmed and coarsely grated
- 1 Tbsp chopped thyme or ½ tsp dried thyme
- 2 tomatoes, thinly sliced
- 2 slices white bread, trimmed and cut into small cubes
- Drain the middlecut, remove the bones and break the meat into chunks.
- Cook the macaroni in a large saucepan of salted, boiling water, as instructed, until tender but firm to the bite. Drain in a colander, then tip into a large bowl.
- Whisk the eggs in a large bowl. Add the middlecut with the macaroni and grated cheese. Season with salt and pepper.
- Heat a little butter and oil in a medium frying pan and stir-fry the grated courgettes and thyme for about 3 minutes until lightly cooked. Level the surface.
- Spoon the egg, noodle and middlecut mixture on top and cook over very low heat for about 5 minutes until the frittata is nearly set. Remove from the heat.
- Arrange the sliced tomatoes neatly on top and scatter over the bread cubes. Place under the oven griller for about 5 minutes until the crumbs are crunchy. Serve hot, garnished with extra thyme sprigs if you wish.
Lucky Star canned fish is a rich source of selenium, which slows the biochemical ageing process of tissue degeneration and hardening – loss of youthful elasticity.
