Sunday Supper…Penne Frittata with Basil and Ricotta

Man, it's been a long week. The opening of the new online shop has been great! Thank you sooooo much for the fantastic response.  I'm exhausted, and I'm sure  you’re tired of hearing about it, so let's cook up something wonderful for Sunday Supper.

We serve lots of pasta at our house because it's just one of our favorite things to eat.  Tonight it's

.  Just found the blog, so I promise I didn't copy when I started this series months ago.  I'm sure glad I found them.  They are doing some amazing things in New York.  Wish I lived there and could attend one of their fabulous events.

Penne Frittata with Basil and Ricotta

Here’s what you’ll need to make this delicious frittata:

6 large eggs

1/2 c fresh ricotta cheese

1/4 cup finely grated Parmesan cheese

Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper

3 cups cooked and drained penne rigate pasta (from 7 ounces dry)

1/4 cup chopped fresh basil

1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

Garnish: fresh basil

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Whisk together eggs, milk, ricotta, Parmesan, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Stir in cooked pasta and chopped basil.

Heat a 10-inch ovenproof skillet (preferably cast-iron) over medium heat. Add oil; swirl to coat bottom and sides of skillet. Pour in egg mixture, and cook until edges are just beginning to set, about 2 minutes. Transfer skillet to oven, and bake until eggs are completely set, 10 to 12 minutes. Invert onto a plate, and re-invert onto a serving dish. Let stand for 5 minutes. Cut into wedges. Garnish with basil.

Yum, yum! I can hardly wait to dig in.

Don't you just love Sunday evenings at home? Particularly this time of year.  Nothing like a roaring fire!

Tonight with Thanksgivingaround the corner and the Christmas holiday just ahead, I plan tobe still, reflective, and very, very thankful.  It's been a long week, and a real blessing because of all of you.

Join me by the fire for a while.  How are you spending the evening?

It's your turn.  Let's talk!
