Frittata with Ricotta and Mixed Greens

Frittata with Ricotta and Mixed Greens Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup plus 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1 medium red onion, finely diced
  • Pinch of red pepper flakes
  • 1 pound chopped mixed greens (such as kale, Swiss chard, or mustard greens)
  • 10 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1/2 plus 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, divided
  • 1 tablespoon red-wine vinegar
  • 8 ounces part-skim ricotta
  • 1 cup fresh basil leaves
  • 3/4 cup fresh parsley leaves
  • 1/4 cup fresh mint leaves
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon pine nuts

Preparation

1. Preheat oven to 350°.

2. In a large nonstick skillet, heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium-high heat. Add onion and cook, stirring, until soft (about 4 minutes). Add pepper flakes and half of greens and cook until wilted and crisp-tender (about 5 minutes); place sautéed greens in a colander. Repeat with remaining greens. Cool slightly and squeeze dry; transfer to a bowl. Using paper towel, wipe out skillet and reserve.

3. In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, Parmesan, and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper until smooth. Add to bowl with greens, vinegar, ricotta, and 1/8 teaspoon pepper; stir to combine. Fold the ricotta mixture into egg mixture.

4. In reserved skillet, heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium heat. Pour egg mixture into pan and cook until the sides are set (about 8 minutes). Transfer to oven and bake until completely set (about 15 minutes).

5. To make pesto: Combine basil, parsley, mint, garlic, and pine nuts in a food processor and process until all ingredients are coarsely chopped. With the motor running, slowly add the remaining 1/3 cup oil and season with 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper.

6. Remove frittata from oven and invert onto serving platter. Slice into 8 wedges and serve with pesto.
