Super Food Supper

10

mmmm. MMMMM. MMMMM!!! Dinner was so good tonight!! I love summer for many, many reasons. One of the main reasons is the bounty of fresh fruits, vegetables and herbs that are available. I utilized these items tonight, to make a Fresh Thyme and Vegetable Frittata!

My frittata had:

  • 2 whole eggs + 4 egg whites
  • Parm cheese
  • Sundried tomatoes
  • Fresh Thyme from my garden
  • Broccoli
  • Yellow squash
  • Leftover pasta
  • S&P
  • Mozzarella cheese for topping

I mixed everything together and cooked in a skillet on the stovetop for ~4-5 minutes. I topped the whole thing with some mozz cheese and popped the skillet under the broiler to melt the cheese and cook the top.

After ~5 minutes or so, I had a delicious, thick, hearty, savory, FABULOUS frittata!!

These flavors meshed so well together and the sundried tomatoes were the perfect POP of flavor and color!

Like I’ve said – the addition of pasta to a frittata, COMPLETELY makes the meal. It gives a great chewy and hearty consistency to the dish!

I’m SO glad I finally found a use for my thyme – just look at this plant…it is out of control!

I also had some vibrant, sweet and juicy strawberries. They were such a perfect contrast to the frittata…

Guys – I’ll post this recipe soon, because this was SO.GOOD. and so easy! I kind of want to eat 6 more pieces…hmmmm… Do you like frittatas?

I’ve been finding myself making eggs a lot lately…they are just so quick and easy – and they fill me up! I also find that they’re super versatile and taste great, really no matter how you fix ‘em! I suppose you could call them my super food. They’re super delicious no matter how many times I eat them and no matter which way I fix them!

    Your frittata looks great! I love having eggs for dinner as they are so easy to put together. I must admit I didn’t know what the difference was between a frittata and omelette – now I know!

    Yum! I love frittatas. I often intend to make them but somehow they usually end up as scrambled eggs b/c I don’t want to take the time to heat up the oven.
