  • Prep Time
  • 4Servings


  • 3 tablespoons EVOO
  • 1 large onion, sliced 1/4-inch thick
  • 1 large tomato, sliced 1/2-inch thick
  • 8 eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 cup grated parmigiano-reggiano
  • 1/3 cup coarsely chopped basil
  • Salt
  • 6 tablespoons fresh ricotta


Preheat the oven to 375 degrees . In a large skillet, heat the EVOO over medium. Add the onion and cook until softened, about 10 minutes; transfer to a plate. Place the tomato in the skillet in a single layer and cook, turning once, until softened at the edges, about 1 minute. Transfer to another plate.

In a bowl, stir the eggs, 1/4 cup parmigiano-reggiano, the basil and 1/2 tsp. salt to combine.

Spread the onion slices in the bottom of the skillet; pour the beaten eggs on top and cook over medium- low heat until the eggs are set around the edges, 2 to 3 minutes.

Place the tomato slices on top of the frittata; dollop the ricotta between the tomatoes. Sprinkle the remaining 1/4 cup parmigiano-reggiano on top. Bake the frittata until the top is golden and set, about 18 minutes. Let rest for a few minutes, then run a spatula around the edge of the skillet to slide onto a platter or cutting board. Cut into wedges. Serve warm or at room temperature.
