My favorite recipe, this week, is Tomato-Pesto Frittata.
Martha Stewart's Everyday Food, June 2012
- Prep Time 10 minutes
- Total Time 25 minutes
- Yield Serves 4
- 8 large eggs
- 1/3 cup basil pesto
- Coarse salt and pepper
- 1 cup shredded fresh mozzarella (4 ounces), divided
- 1 teaspoon olive oil
- 2 small tomatoes, thinly sliced
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees. In a large bowl, lightly beat eggs. Stir in pesto, 3/4 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon pepper, and 3/4 cup mozzarella. In a 10-inch nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium-high. Add egg mixture and cook, stirring occasionally, 1 to 2 minutes. Arrange tomatoes in a single layer on top and sprinkle with remaining mozzarella.
- Bake until puffed and center is just set, 10 to 12 minutes. Let sit 5 minutes; run a rubber spatula around edge and beneath frittata before transferring to a cutting board. Cut into wedges and serve.
My personal take on this recipe...
I liked my Frittata at room temperature and I used feta cheese and heirloom tomatos on the top, with a basil leave to decorate.

Sharon Kleve was born and raised in Washington and currently lives on the Olympic Peninsula with her husband.
She loves romance. She loves reading romance, living romance, and especially loves writing about romance. She gets no greater feeling than watching her characters come alive in each other's arms. Most of all, she loves giving her characters the happily ever after they deserve—with a few bumps and bruises along the way.
One of her favorite things to do is picking up a new book and sinking into the story, immersing herself in the emotions between the characters. She hopes to inspire her readers the same way her favorite authors have inspired her.
When not writing, she can usually be found either curled up in her recliner with her cat and a good book, or in the kitchen baking sourdough bread or bagels.
