Baked Asparagus Frittata.

Ingredients

For 9 Person(s)

For the Frittata:

  • One bunch fresh Asparagus, washed and ends trimmed

  • 6 large eggs

  • 1/4 cup grated Pecorino Romano cheese

  • 1/4 cup whole milk ricotta

  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

  • 5 fresh thyme sprigs

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt and black pepper as desired

Directions

  1. Put a pan with a lid large enough to hold the asparagus spears over a medium-high flame. Pour enough water in to cover the bottom of the pan. Add the asparagus and cover. Cook for 10 minutes.
    *You may also use a steam basket if you have one.

  2. Remove to a plate and preheat your oven to 400 degrees.

  3. Oil a 9 inch springform pan.

  4. Arrange the asparagus in the springform pan. You can either lay them flat or twist them.

  5. In a mixing bowl combine the eggs, cheese, ricotta, oil and thyme that has been removed from the sprigs. Mix until smooth.

  6. Pour the mixture over the asparagus. Bake for 30-40 minutes or until the top of the frittata is golden brown.
