  • Yield: Serves 6 (serving size: 1 frittata wedge and about 1/3 cup arugula mixture)
  • Hands-on:23 Minutes
  • Total:28 Minutes

Ingredients

  • 2 ounces finely grated fresh pecorino Romano cheese (about 1/2 cup)
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 8 large eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 1 (8-ounce) package sliced mushrooms
  • 3/4 cup chopped green onions
  • 1/3 cup chopped fresh basil
  • 2 cups baby arugula
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice

Preparation

1. Preheat oven to 350°.

2. Combine first 3 ingredients; add 1/4 teaspoon salt, stirring with a whisk. Heat a 10-inch ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Add 2 teaspoons oil; swirl to coat. Add mushrooms and remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt; sauté 6 minutes or until mushrooms brown and most of liquid evaporates. Stir in onions; sauté 2 minutes. Reduce heat to medium. Add egg mixture and basil to pan, stirring gently to evenly distribute vegetable mixture; cook 5 minutes or until eggs are partially set. Place pan in oven. Bake at 350° for 7 minutes or until eggs are cooked through and top is lightly browned. Remove pan from oven; let stand 5 minutes. Run a spatula around edge and under frittata to loosen from pan; slide frittata onto a plate or cutting board.

3. Combine the remaining 1 teaspoon oil, arugula, and lemon juice. Cut the frittata into 6 wedges; top with arugula mixture.
