Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
Heat a large pot of water to boiling. Add the angel hair pasta and cook it for 2 minutes. Drain and set aside.
Add 1 tablespoon of the olive oil to a 10″ non stick skillet that is oven safe. Heat it over medium low heat.
Add the sausage to the skillet and cook for 3 minutes, stirring occasionally and breaking the sausage up with a spatula into small chunks.
Add the shallot to the skillet and cook for an additional minute.
The sausage should be cooked through at this point. Remove it to a plate. Wipe down the skillet.
In a large bowl, whisk the eggs and milk together. Combine well.
Stir in the mozzarella cheese, parmesan cheese, red peppers, kosher salt, black pepper, crushed red pepper and parsley. Combine well.
Add the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil to the skillet over medium heat. Add the pasta and press it evenly over the entire bottom of the pan. Cook it for 3 minutes.
Pour the egg mixture into the skillet and let it cook for an additional 3 minutes to brown the pasta crust.
Place the skillet into the oven and bake for 25-30 minutes until the top is set and browned.
