Frittatas are truly delicious for breakfast but they can also make a satisfying lunch and dinner entrée as well. Serve with a crisp salad drizzled with balsamic vinaigrette.


  • 1 pound asparagus, tough ends discarded, cut into 2-inch pieces
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1 cup grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese
  • 1/2 cup small-curd cottage cheese


  1. Place a large sauté pan over medium heat and add the oil. When the oil begins to shimmer, add the asparagus, a few pinches of salt and pepper, and sauté for 5 minutes stirring occasionally.
  2. In the meantime, place the eggs, cheeses and 2 pinches of salt and pepper into a bowl and whisk to combine.
  3. Add the egg mixture to the sautéed asparagus and cook for 5 minutes, then cover the pan and cook for an additional 7 minutes over medium-low heat.
  4. Cut the frittata into slices and serve immediately.
