The photographs of this delicious, beautiful frittata have been sitting on my computer, untouched for way too long! I meant to share this recipe here ages ago, but alas, I am behind on life, as usual.

Still, I am so excited to be sharing it at last. They say that good things are worth the wait, and in this case — yes, so worth it!

The frittata is one of the world’s most perfect foods. It’s cheap, yet beautiful. It’s easy to cook, and it’s an excellent way to use up leftovers. You can make it as simple or as beautiful as you like. It is the ultimate brunch food. It’s perfect for a fancy get together, or a simple breakfast in your pajamas.

Directions
First, set aside twenty tomato halves. Next, coat a non-stick, oven-safe pan with extra virgin olive oil and heat on low. Add spinach, remaining tomatoes, and garlic. Sauté until spinach wilts, but is still slightly crisp, not soggy. While veggies sauté, crack eggs and beat them with a whisk. Stir in mozzarella cheese, salt, and pepper to taste.

Preheat oven to 350°. Carefully add your egg mixture to your sautéed vegetables. I stir mine in slowly with a spatula so as to evenly disperse vegetables throughout. Allow this to cook over medium-low heat until eggs are just beginning to harden.

Carefully place set aside tomato halves on top of eggs, open side up, in rows. (See pictures.) Sprinkle additional salt, pepper, and shredded mozzarella over top of these tomatoes. Place the entire pan into the oven and bake at 350° until cheese is melted and frittata is just starting to turn golden.

Remove from oven and serve warm. Bon appétit!
