Ingredients

2 tablespoons butter

1 red bell pepper, seeded and thinly sliced

1 yellow bell pepper, seeded and thinly sliced

1 medium Spanish onion, halved and thinly sliced

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

14 large eggs

1/3 cup grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese

1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh oregano

1/4 cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley

Roasted Cherry Tomato Sauce, recipe follows

Fresh basil, to garnish

Roasted Cherry Tomato Sauce

3 tablespoons olive oil

1 pint cherry tomatoes, cut into quarters

2 cloves garlic, made into a paste with salt

1/4 cup chopped fresh basil, coarsely chopped

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Heat the butter in a 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the red pepper, yellow pepper, and onions, season with salt, and pepper and cook until softened, stirring occasionally.
  2. Whisk together the eggs, Parmesan, and oregano until light and fluffy, and then season with salt and pepper. Pour the egg mixture into the pan and stir with a rubber spatula. Cook for 4 to 5 minutes or until the egg mixture has set on the bottom and begins to set up on top. Place the pan into the oven and broil for 3 to 4 minutes, until lightly browned and fluffy. Remove from pan and sprinkle the top with parsley. Carefully slide the frittata onto a cutting board and cut into wedges and top with some of the roasted cherry tomato sauce and garnish with fresh basil. Serve hot or at room temperature.
