For those of you who are unfamiliar with frittatas, they are simply an Italian take on the omelette. And, as usual, the Italians prove that they are the masters of a kitchen.
Frittatas are incredibly easy and can be loaded wth many more ingredients than omelettes as they don't need to be folded and removed in their entirety from a pan. You simply cook the vegetable ingredients in an ovenproof cast-iron pan, add the egg mixure cooking until it is set and then placing the frittata in the oven to finish. Once cooked, it can be sliced up in the pan and served. This recipe serves 4 as a main course and will give you dome leftovers to have for lunch the next day.
Eggs are a great way to get protein and frittatas provide the perfect backdrop to load your meal with healthy vegetables.
