Spinach and Feta Frittata
This is a staple dinner in our house. It's delicious and extremely easy to make because I cheat and use frozen spinach. It may not look that pretty but the taste more than makes up for it.
1 packet of frozen spinach
1\2 block of fat reduced feta cheese, chopped into small chunks
some toasted pine nuts
salt and pepper
Put spinach in the microwave and defrost according to the directions on the packet. Then set it aside to cool a little bit. Beat eggs briefly in large bowl. Add salt and pepper to taste although remember that you'll be adding feta which is salty so go easy on the salt. Squeeze all the water that you possibly can out of the spinach and add to the eggs, followed by the cheese and a couple of small handfuls of pine nuts. Stir to combine all the ingredients nicely and then pour into a shallow fry pan or casserole dish. Cook in a moderate oven for about 25 minutes or until firm and browned on the top.
This recipe should make about 8 pieces of frittata.
