Frittata with Roasted Vegetables
1 small eggplant, (about 12 ounces) trimmed and cut into 1-inch cubes
Place eggplant, peppers, carrot, zucchini, onion and garlic in 13-by-9-inch baking dish. Drizzle vegetables with oil. Roast at 400 degrees until edges are browned, 40 to 50 minutes, turning every 20 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Stir in chopped parsley.
1 small red bell pepper, halved, seeds and stem removed, cut into 1/2-inch wedges
1 small green bell pepper, halved, seeds and stem removed, cut into 1/2-inch wedges
1 large carrot, trimmed and pared, cut into 1/2-inch diagonal slices
1 small zucchini, trimmed and pared, cut into 1/2-inch diagonal slices
1 red onion, trimmed, cut into 1-inch wedges
4 cloves garlic, bruised with side of knife
2 tablespoons olive oil
freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons chopped parsley or basil
8 large eggs
3 tablespoons freshly grated parmigiano-reggiano
1/2 cup shredded or 4 ounces thinly sliced mozzarella cheese
If using leftover roasted vegetables, heat them in heavy 10-inch nonstick skillet until very hot, about 3 minutes.
Spread vegetables evenly in pan. Whisk eggs until frothy and very well-blended. Add 2 tablespoons Parmigiano-Reggiano, salt and pepper to taste. Pour eggs over vegetables and cook, without stirring, until eggs set around edges, about 5 minutes. Using rubber spatula, lift frittata edge and tilt pan slightly to allow uncooked eggs to run under cooked portion and cook until eggs are almost set in center, about 10 minutes more. Arrange mozzarella evenly over frittata top. Sprinkle with remaining tablespoon Parmigiano-Reggiano. Cover and cook until eggs are set and cheese melted, or, if preferred, place skillet under preheated broiler and broil just until frittata is set and cheese melts, about 1 minute. To serve, loosen frittata edges and slide it onto large serving platter.
Makes 4 servings.
