Trying to find out what this is called, help

Hi everyone the other day I was at a party and there was a great dish there that I loved but im stumped on what it is .I thought I might need some expert help so here goes .

It was made out of round bb shape pasta looked like it was baked with maby egg mixed in it had pepperoni on top and was crispy .It was almost like keish but firmer .I know this is a long shot and seems stupid but I figured its worth a shot.

It sounds like a frittata.

If it looked like this than it's a spaghetti pie. I don't think frittata has pasta in it.

As for the pasta - if it was small and round like bb's it could have been acini di pepe ("peppercorn") - or if it was a little oval like a very small grain of rice it was probably orzo ("barley").

The dish could have been an orzo frittata (chicken and orzo frittata) or an orzo casserole (one of these might give you some ideas) - which if you brown the top under the broiler it would be like a frittata.

Frittatas can have pasta in them. They can have just about anything.

I very often use leftover spaghetti in my fritattas.
