Frittata

Frittata is very much similar to an Omelet but the only difference is using some extra ingredients to improve the taste.I just used Ricotta cheese,as I don't have fresh Parmesan cheese at home.U can use the veggies of ur choice,ofcourse Pasta can also be of any shape and kind. This tasted good than a regular omelet.Here goes the recipe.


Ingredients:

Eggs:4 no(break open the eggs into a bowl and beat them smooth)
Onions:1 medium(cut)
Pasta(Any Shape of ur choice):1/2 cup(cook it in water by adding salt,drain the water and put aside)
Tomato:2(cut 1 tomato into cubes n 1 tomato into rounds)
Mushroom:10 no(cut into quarters)
Capsicum:1/2(chopped)
Ricotta Cheese:3 spns
Whole Milk:1/4 cup
Parmesan Cheese:2 spns
Salt:To Taste
Pepper:To Taste
Chilli Powder To Taste
Chopped Cilantro:2 spns
Green Chillies:2-3(Adjust to taste,very finely chopped)
Oil:2 spns
Procedure:

1.In a pan add a spoon of oil and add onion,capsicum,mushroom,tomato and toss them for 3-5 mins,till they are 50% done.
2.Add milk,ricotta cheese,salt,chilli powder,chopped green chillies,chopped cilantro,pepper and mix it well,make sure that the chili powder will not form lumps.
3.Now add the tossed veggies and cooked pasta to the egg mixture and pour this into a non-stick pan which is greased with oil.Put this pan on flame and wait till the batter settles down and cooks at the bottom.This make take around 3-5 mins.
4.Now when the bottom is well done place the tomato rounds and sprinkle the Parmesan cheese on the top and cover the pan with a silver foil and put it in the oven pre-heated at 325 degrees for 8-10 mins.By now the top also cooks well ,carefully take it to a plate and cut into 6 quarters.
5.Serve it hot with chilli sauce or Tomato Ketchup.

Note:

Using a non-stick pan in the oven is not at all suggestable but I don,t have a cast-iron skillet so had to use it.U better use a skillet if u have one.
