A frittata, an Italian omelet with ingredients mixed with the eggs before cooking, is a great way to incorporate fresh vegetables of the season. Try adding chopped sweet red peppers or sliced squash when you add the onions, or for a heartier touch, toss in some cooked, chopped bacon or ham before baking. Prep: 25 minutes, Cook: 22 minutes.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 400°.

  • Heat olive oil and butter in a medium (9- or 10-inch) ovenproof skillet over medium heat. Add potatoes, and cook, stirring occasionally, about 6 minutes or until potatoes are slightly tender and brown. Add onions, and sauté about 1 minute or until slightly wilted and translucent.

  • Add spinach and arugula, and cook, stirring constantly, about 1 minute or until spinach wilts.

  • Whisk together eggs and next 4 ingredients in a bowl, and pour over vegetables.

  • Remove skillet from heat; drop ricotta by the teaspoon onto frittata, and sprinkle with basil.

  • Bake at 400°, uncovered, for 13 to 15 minutes or just until eggs are set around the edges and slightly loose in the center. Remove skillet from oven, and let stand for about 5 minutes, loosely covered. Cut into wedges, and serve immediately, or cool and serve at room temperature.
