  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 large onion sliced
  • 1 1/2 lbs zucchini sliced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh basil or 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 6 eggs
  • 1/3 cup Parmesan cheese
  • salt & pepper to taste
  1. In frying pan, heat 1 tablespoon of oil, add sliced onions and saute until wilted.  Add zucchini and cook until tender - about 10 mins.  Add basil and remove from heat.  Pour into strainer and let drain.
  2. In a bowl, beat eggs, add cheese and mix well.  Add drained zucchini mixture.
  3. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in frying pan.  Add egg mixture.  Distribute the mixture evenly in the pan.  Lower the heat and cook until set - 12 - 14 mins.
  4. Place a large dish on top of the frying pan and invert the frittata.  Carefully slide the upside down frittata back into the frying pan and let cook 2 mins longer.  Invert onto a dish and serve.  Cut the frittata into wedges, the same way you would cut a pie.
