Plan B - The Original

Well, I was going to post about a childhood favorite today, but I can't find my recipe. SOOOOO...I'll show the original garden frittata. I think this is from Light and Tasty but I'm not sure. I found that I had a squash and a zucchini...just what I need for this frittata. I only put tomatoes on half, because the roommate doesn't eat tomatoes. This is the perfect dish for summer and is full of veggies. Thus, this is my entry for Sweetnick's ARF Tuesdays. Drop by and check out the other recipes. I'm sure they will be picking up as fruits and veggies are coming into season!
Garden Frittata
1 yellow squash, sliced
1 zucchini, sliced
1 onion, diced
1-2 tomatoes (I like Roma the best)
4 eggs
1 cup milk
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons parsley
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/4 cup feta cheese
1 cup low fat mozzarella (you can use less if you want)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Put prepared squash, zucchini, and onion in a microwave safe bowl, cover with plastic wrap. Put bowl in the microwave and cook on high for 7-9 minutes. Drain these vegetables and pour them into the bottom of a pie pan. Place slices of tomato on top of the squash. Sprinkle mozzarella on top and then top with feta. Wisk together eggs, milk, garlic, salt, pepper, and parsley. Pour over the vegetables...slowly, to be sure that it doesn't run over. Place in the oven and bake for 50 minutes. Allow to set for 5 minutes before serving.

Ooh, this looks so good! And I don't like tomatoes but the hubby does, so I could do the half on / half off thing :) Great picture, I'm going to have to copy this one off!

Looks really good! I think I'll have to make a version for next week since I think we'll probably break 100 degrees by Sunday (yuck!)

Cate - Thanks! They are great b/c you can clean out the fridge in a delicious way!

Stacy - Half and half is the way to go! Try it.

Gail - I'm glad that at least one person in you family is sane! ;-)

Alisha - Yuk! I hope it's at least a dry heat. Anything at 100 is just too hot. That's why I have vowed not to move any further South (and I guess too far west!) than I am now! I hope frittata is the perfect light meal for that heat.

I love those tomatoes... what a beautiful fritatta!

Kristen - Thanks! I'm still enjoying it, too! :-)

BTW - This kind of recipe works well with greenhouse tomatoes since they are cooked, so it can easily be done all year round.
