{image from a cup of jo}

made this last week and today joanna's talking about it. i agree: it's delisch. thank you sunday suppers and martha stewart living! i never knew pasta and eggs could be so happy together.

penne frittata with ricotta and basil
gently tweaked from martha stewart

6 large eggs
1/2 cup whole milk
1/2 cup ricotta cheese
1/4 cup parmesan cheese
2 cloves minced garlic
salt and pepper
3 cups cooked and drained whole wheat penne (from 7 oz. dry)
1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
1 tsp. dried oregano
1 T. olive oil
grated mozzarella for garnish

1. preheat oven to 400. whisk together eggs, milk, ricotta, parmesan, garlic, 1 tsp. salt and 1/4 tsp. pepper. stir in cooked pasta, basil, and oregano.
2. heat a 10-inch ovenproof skillet over med heat. add oil; swirl to coat bottom and sides of pan. pour in egg mixture and cook until edges are just beginning to set, about 2 min.
3. transfer skillet to oven and bake until eggs are cooked, 10 to 12 minutes. invert onto a plate and re-invert onto a serving dish. garnish with mozzarella and basil and cut into wedges.

i served it with chilled marinara sauce, which made it even 10x better.

Any suggestions for someone who doesn't have any oven-safe skillets? (looks too delicious not to try!)

Mmmm...looks good! I might have to try this one for my pasta-loving-guys when I need a fresh idea in my pasta repertoire.

That looks delicious, Summer! If I can motivate myself to get into the kitchen, I might have to try this one.

@ chelsea
chels, when you get to the oven step, you could try scooping the frittata out of the skillet with a big spatula and putting it on an overnproof baking sheet or dish for the last part!
