Updated Nov 25, 2010

Ingredients

  • 8 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon coarsely chopped fresh sage
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 cup grated Romano cheese
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 small zucchini, sliced
  • 2 green onions, sliced
  • 2 Italian plum tomatoes, thinly sliced lengthwise

Steps

  • 1
    In medium bowl, combine eggs, sage, salt, pepper and 1/4 cup of the cheese; beat well. Set aside.
  • 2
    Heat oil in medium ovenproof nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot. Add zucchini and onions; cook and stir 2 minutes or until zucchini is tender. Add egg mixture; cook 2 minutes or until egg mixture is almost set, lifting edges occasionally to allow uncooked egg mixture to flow to bottom of skillet.
  • 3
    Top frittata with tomato slices; sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup cheese. Broil 4 to 6 inches from heat for 1 to 3 minutes or until top is set and begins to brown.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Roma tomatoes are a variety of Italian plum tomatoes. Shaped like small pears, they have less moisture and consequently have a more concentrated tomato flavor. Italian plum tomatoes are used for recipes where less liquid is desired.
  • tip 2
    Parmesan cheese can be used in place of Romano cheese. Both are Italian hard cheese; Romano has a sharper flavor than Parmesan because it is made with goat's milk. Parmesan is made with cow's milk.
  • tip 3
    Substituting 8 egg whites for 4 of the whole eggs will reduce the cholesterol by about 215 milligrams and fat by about 5 grams per serving of this recipe.
  • tip 4
    This frittata is perfect with melon wedges and tall glasses of iced tea.
