"Stylized after a Lydia Bastianich recipe. I saw her show and she made a tomato and ricotta frittata and afterwards an asparagus and pepper scramble, although hers was made with raw pepper. Both looked tasty, so I combined the best of both worlds. Makes a great easy breakfast or brunch item, although Lydia says it is often served for dinner in Italy. I could do that. Serves 2-3 depending on how many eggs they like, but sliced into wedges, it could serve 6 as part of a brunch buffet."

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350F.

Step 2

Heat butter in a 10-inch oven safe nonstick skillet, and add onions, cooking until they wilt.

Step 3

Add asparagus, season with salt and pepper and add chives, cook for one minute; add 1/4 cup hot water to skillet and continue cooking until water evaporates, about 2 minutes more.

Step 4

Add pepper slices to the asparagus and mix.

Step 5

Pour beaten eggs evenly over vegetables in the skillet.

Step 6

Add 6 dallops of ricotta cheese to the frittata, evenly spaced- you don't really have to measure the cheese, it's not that important.

Step 7

Sprinkle the top with Parmesan and place oven safe skillet in the oven (do not broil).

Step 8

Bake for about 25 minutes or until set.

Step 9

Allow to cool in the pan for 10-15 minutes, then loosen sides if needed before sliding the frittata onto a platter.

Step 10

Slice into wedges and serve.

Tips & Variations


  • Your nonstick skillet needs to be oven safe. Check your manufacturer if you are not sure.
