Asparagus Frittata with Red Bell Peppers: Main Image

Quick Facts

Servings: 6
Cook Time: 55 min.
Feta cheese adds a tangy bite to this easy vegetarian dish.

Ingredients

  • 1 lb asparagus, trimmed and blanched
  • salt, as needed
  • 1 red bell pepper, julienned
  • 1/2 cup onion, chopped
  • 2 Tbs olive oil
  • 8 eggs, beaten
  • 2 Tbs Italian parsley, chopped
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp freshly ground pepper
  • 4 oz feta cheese, crumbled (about 1 cup)
  • 1 Tbs butter, softened
  • lemon wedges and sprigs of Italian parsley for garnish

Directions

  • Reserve 6 asparagus spears. Cut remaining asparagus at an angle into -inch pieces, reserve.
  • Sauté bell pepper in 2 tablespoons olive oil until soft, but not browned, about 7 minutes. Stir in onion and reserved asparagus pieces; sauté for 1 minute. With a slotted spoon remove vegetables to drain on paper toweling, reserve.
  • Whisk chopped parsley, salt and pepper into beaten eggs. Stir in cheese and reserved sautéed vegetables. Coat the inside of a heavy, non-stick -inch frying pan (with a cover) with softened butter. Pour egg mixture into pan. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven, covered, until eggs are just firm, about 35 minutes. Remove cover; bake until top is lightly browned, about 10 minutes.
  • Loosen the frittata, then cover pan with a large, warmed serving platter. Flip frying pan over onto platter. Cut frittata into 6 wedges; garnish each with 1 reserved asparagus spear. Divide wedges among 6 serving plates, then put a lemon wedge and a sprig of parsley on each plate.

Preparation Tip: Use a cheese planer or a potato peeler to shave cheese paper thin.
