Zucchini Tomato Frittata

Tried this frittata for breakfast. One slice ( 1/4 of the pan ) is only 2 points!

Zucchini Tomato Frittata: serves 4 ( 3 points + )

  • 1/3 c. sun-dried tomatoes, not packed in oil
  • 1 c. boiling water
  • 1-1/2 c. egg beaters
  • 1/2 c. FF cottage cheese ( such as Fiber One)
  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • 1/4 c. minced fresh basil or 1 T. dried
  • 1/8 tsp. red pepper flakes
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 c. sliced zucchini
  • 1 c. fresh broccoli florets
  • 1 med. sweet red pepper, chopped
  • 2 tsp. canola oil
  • 2 T. grated Parmesan cheese

place tomatoes in a small bowl and cover with boiling water. Let stand 5 minutes; drain.

In a large bowl, whisk together egg beaters, cottage cheese, onions, red pepper flakes, basil, salt and pepper and sun-dried tomatoes.

In a 10" oven-proof skillet, saute zucchini, red pepper and broccoli in oil until tender. Add egg mixture. Cover and reduce heat. Cook until almost set. Remove cover, sprinkle with cheese. Broil 3-4" from heat for 2-3 minutes or until eggs are completely set. Let stand 5 minutes.
