Spring Vegetable & Prosciutto Frittata

3/4 c. heavy cream

6 eggs, beaten

3 oz. prosciutto, chopped

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

2 tbsp. unsalted butter

1/2 lb. asparagus, trimmed and cut into 2-inch pieces

4 scallions, sliced

1 garlic clove, finely chopped

4 oz. goat cheese, crumbled

Preheat oven to 350°F. Whisk together eggs, cream, prosciutto, 1 teaspoon salt, and ½ teaspoon pepper in a bowl.

Melt butter in a 10-inch oven-proof nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add asparagus and sauté until crisp-tender, 2 to 4 minutes. Add scallions, and garlic and sauté until scallions are just wilted, 1 to 2 minutes.

Reduce heat to medium. Pour egg mixture over vegetables and cook until eggs begin to set around the edges, 3 to 4 minutes. Sprinkle with goat cheese. Bake until set, 15 to 17 minutes. Serve immediately.

We hope you enjoy this great recipe from our kitchen – the first of a recipe series from Mondo Pizza Kitchen!  Take advantage of the kids being home this summer and get the entire family in the kitchen to experiment with some great new recipes! In order to help you accomplish this, we’re going to share one of Mondo’s favorite recipes each month in our blog. Be on the lookout each month for some great recipes from your favorite neighborhood Italian restaurant in Milton!
