A frittata makes for one of the easiest and tastiest weeknight suppers possible. This recipe is packed with veg and topped with a crisp cheesy crust.


  • 225ml (8 fl oz) water
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 green pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 3 courgette, cut into thin slices
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 1 small red onion, diced
  • 6 mushrooms, chopped
  • 15g (1/2 oz) butter
  • 5 eggs
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 100g (4 oz) mozzarella cheese, grated
  • 3 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas mark 4.
  2. In a large ovenproof frying pan over medium-high heat, combine water, olive oil, salt, green pepper, courgette, and garlic cloves. Simmer until the courgette is tender, about 5 to 7 minutes.
  3. Drain off water and discard garlic. Stir in onion, mushrooms, and butter. Cook until onion is transparent. Add eggs and stir; season with salt and pepper. Cook over low heat until eggs are firm.
  4. Sprinkle mozzarella cheese over eggs. Bake in preheated oven for 10 minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Place under the grill for 5 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes before cutting into wedges and serving.


Tip: If you don't want to wait for your oven to preheat, try putting the frittata under the grill for the entire period. Just watch it carefully so that the cheese doesn't burn!

!Cook's tip: The trick for a perfect frittata is to cook over a medium to low heat and allow the mixture to set slowly without stirring. Stirring once the egg has begun to set will break the mixture apart. Too high a heat will burn the base before the egg is set sufficiently to finish under the grill.
