Frittata

Frittata

I love making a frittata. It’s an easy-to-make, healthy meal and a great way to express your creativity. All you need are your favorite vegetables (mine are zucchini, bell peppers and artichokes) along with onions, eggs, cheese, and of course extra virgin olive oil – and if you have one, a “gira frittata’’ pan to easily flip/turn your frittata.  

You can also bake a frittata.  Instead of “frying” (which is the meaning of the word, frittata), put the mixture in a well-oiled baking dish; sprinkle with shredded or grated Parmesan cheese and bake at 350 for 40 – 45 minutes.  Let cool before slicing.  This type of frittata or really “torta” resembles more of a quiche.
