  • Add garlic, and sauté 1 minute. Stir in spinach, and cook, stirring constantly, 1 minute or just until spinach begins to wilt.

  • Add tomatoes and green chiles, olives, salt, and pepper, and cook, stirring frequently, 2 to 3 minutes or until spinach is wilted. Add eggs, and sprinkle with cheese. Cook 3 to 5 minutes, gently lifting edges of frittata with a spatula and tilting pan so uncooked portion flows underneath.

  • Bake at 350° for 12 to 15 minutes or until set and lightly browned. Remove from oven, and let stand 5 minutes. Slide frittata onto a large platter, and cut into 8 wedges.

  • *1 (32-oz.) carton egg substitute may be substituted. Increase bake time to 16 to 18 minutes or until set.

  • **Plain feta cheese may be substituted.

  • Note: We tested with Ro-Tel Mild Diced Tomatoes and Green Chilies.
