Recipe Ingredients for Zucchini-tomato frittata

1 spray cooking spray
1 cup zucchini, sliced
1 cup broccoli florets
1 cup bell pepper, diced (red or yellow)
3 whole eggs, raw, lightly beaten
5 egg whites, raw, lightly beaten
1/2 cup low-fat cottage cheese
1/2 cup sun-dried tomatoes (1-ounce dry), coarsley chopped
1/4 cup green onions, chopped
1/4 cup fresh basil, chopped
1/8 tsp ground red pepper
2 tbsp parmesan cheese
1 tsp paprika, optional

Recipe Directions for Zucchini-tomato frittata

  1. Preheat broiler. Spray 10-inch ovenproof nonstick skillet with cooking spray. Place zucchini, broccoli and bell pepper in skillet; cook and stir over high heat 3 to 4 minutes or until crisp-tender.

  2. Combine whole eggs, egg whites, cottage cheese, tomatoes, onions, basil and ground red pepper in medium bowl; mix well. Pour egg mixture over vegetables in skillet. Cook, uncovered, gently lifting sides of frittata so uncooked egg flows underneath. Cook 7 to 8 minutes or until frittata is almost firm and golden brown on bottom. Remove from heat. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese.

  3. Broil about 5 inches from heat 3 to 5 minutes or until golden brown on surface. Garnish with paprika, if desired. Cut into wedges. Serve immediately.
