Author: dianajeanne

Ingredients

  • 1 bunch of asparagus – cut off 2 inches of the less desired ends & discard cut the rest into 1-1/2 inch pieces
  • 1 15 oz container of ricotta cheese I used part skim
  • 1 bunch chives 1/4 cup finely chopped
  • 1 chopped garlic clove
  • 2 tbs cream
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 4 - 5 eggs
  • 1/2 tbs olive oil
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  • Heat the olive oil in a sauté pan for a few seconds until the oil is hot. Add the asparagus and saute for a few seconds.
  • Add 1/2 the salt and ground black pepper. Add 2 tbs water and cover pan with lid. Cook the asparagus for about 4 minutes until crispy tender. Remove from heat and set aside. Separate some of the tips for later use.
  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs and remaining salt and pepper.  Add the chives, cream, grated cheese and ricotta cheese. Combine with a whisk and add the asparagus along with pan juices. Stir with a spoon to thoroughly combine.
  • Grease a baking dish or with non-stick baking spray or olive oil.
  • Empty the mixture into the baking dish and arrange the asparagus tips on top.
  • Bake in the hot oven for about 20-25 minutes till the frittata has set. It will still be a little jiggly towards the center.
  • Turn the oven to broil and set under the broiler for 2 minutes for a nice golden brown finish.  Allow to cool for about 10 minutes before serving.
