Vegetable Frittata with Lemon Crema starts with the veggies: Carrots, Broccoli, Cauliflower, Zucchini, and Scallion.  Does this scream good-for-you or what?  But don’t worry, there are plenty of eggs, some cheese too, to round out the dish and give it a creamy, buttery, nutty flavor.

Then, top with a fresh, bright and zesty Lemon Crema, that needs only lemon, sour cream, salt, and pepper.  It adds another layer of flavor that you will fall in love with!

I just love this Frittata because (1) it’s DELICIOUS (2) it’s Gluten Free (3) you can really use up any veggies that you have in your fridge, so go nuts.  You can also swap out the cheddar for another favorite cheese, like goat cheese, if you want.  Finally, (4) it is E-A-S-Y clean-up!  Only one bowl to mix the eggs and one pan to cook that starts on the stove and then moves to the oven.  Of course, you need to prep the veggies, but do that in the day(s) ahead and the night you cook is no-muss, no-fuss!

PREP-AHEAD TO MAKE YOUR VEGETABlE FRITTATA COOKING ‘KIT’

You are busy, so these are the steps you can do a day or two in advance to prepare food ahead!  (See the recipe below for more details)

  • All of the vegetables can be prepared in advance, including cleaning, peeling, and cutting into small pieces.
  • For the Zucchini, you want to slice it into thin rounds for layering on top.

  • I love carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, zucchini, and scallions for this frittata because of the different colors and textures.  You can really use any vegetables that you love or have on hand though.
  • You can also make the Lemon Crema ahead of time and store it in the fridge.

COOK YOUR VEGETABLE FRITTATA:

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  • When you are ready to cook your frittata, you first make the egg mixture and set aside.
  • Cook the vegetables (not the Zucchini yet) in a pan until starting to soften.

INSPIRED BY ITALY

Italian food always seems very romantic to me.  When I think of Spaghetti, I think of Lady and the Tramp.  You know the scene sharing the pasta and kissing – yes, I am a bit of a sap.  So, Italy was a natural choice for my honeymoon over 10 years ago.  For our 10th Anniversary, this past July, Dave and I decided to go back for some much-needed romance.  I mean, having kids takes its toll in the romance department – am I right?

The trip was absolutely amazing.  Here’s another amazing recipe – Walnut Sauce with Ricotta & Spinach Pasta Recipe – that was inspired by a dish I ate in Cinque Terre.

Let’s Make this Skillet Ground Chicken Tomato & Ricotta!

PREP-AHEAD TO MAKE SKILLET GROUND CHICKEN TOMATO SAUCE COOKING ‘KIT’

This recipe is so simple, that there isn’t much to do ahead of time.   Mince the garlic and rough chopping the basil leaves.  You can also just leave the basil whole for garnish at the end.

The ground chicken tomato sauce can also be made in advance and stored it in the fridge.  Then on the night you are ready to eat it, heat it up in the skillet, add the spaghetti (or gluten free pasta as I used) and the ricotta.

COOK YOUR CHICKEN TOMATO SAUCE WITH RICOTTA MEAL:

  • For this recipe, I used gluten free rice noodles, which really act like spaghetti.  There are a lot of different gluten free pastas available.  Make sure it’s sturdy enough to hold up in the sauce and that you do not overcook it.  , so that it doesn’t turn to mush in the sauce.  I find the rice noodles cooked al dente hold up really well.  Of course, you can always use regular spaghetti for this!
  • Since this recipe is so simple with just a few ingredients, here is the secret to really bringing out the flavor.  BROWN the ground chicken.  I’m talking REALLY BROWN it!  Sear it to the point where you worry the brown bits on the bottom of the pan may burn.  That’s what will give your sauce real depth of flavor with this low fat and calorie meat.  BROWNED = FLAVOR 🙂

  • Once the ground chicken is really browned add the garlic and broth.  As you add the broth, scrape the bottom to pick up all of those yummy brown bits stuck to the skillet.  Those brown bits will give your sauce great flavor.  I used Better than Bouillon Vegetable Base broth in this dish because I love the deep, rich flavors it brings.  You can use any other chicken or veggie broth you like.

  • This is a quick weeknight meal, so I recommend using sweet, full flavored canned San Marzano Whole Peeled tomatoes.  You can break them up easily for a textured sauce with pieces of the tomato, which I really love vs. a pureed tomato sauce.

Ingredients

  • 16 oz Ground Chicken Breast Free Range, No antibiotics used
  • 28 oz San Marzano Whole peeled tomatoes
  • 1 cup Vegetable Broth or Chicken Broth
  • 1 clove Garlic
  • 1/2 tsp Salt increase to 1 tsp if your broth is unsalted
  • 1 tsp Fresh Ground Pepper
  • 2 tsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 8 oz Spaghetti I used gluten free
  • 16 oz Ricotta Cheese
  • 3/4 cup Basil Leaves, loose

Instructions

Prep Ahead

  1. Mince the garlic Clove.  Rough chop the basil leaves - or just leave them whole for garnish at the end.

Cook

  1. Make the spaghetti to al dente according to package instructions then set aside until you are ready to add to the sauce.  NOTE: you do not want to over cook the pasta as it will continue to cook in the sauce.

  2. Preheat a large skillet on high heat.  Add 2 tsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil and spread it around the skillet.  Add the ground chicken, break it up and make a single layer of meat so that all of it can get a nice brown sear.

  3. Let the chicken cook on high heat for at least 5 minutes without touching it, but even longer is better so that it gets REALLY BROWNED!  Then flip the chicken over breaking it up again so that it doesn't form one large patty and cook the other side for another 5 minutes.  You want to make sure that all of the pink is gone and preferably all of the white too so that everything is nice and browned.  BROWNED = FLAVOR 🙂

  4. Now add the minced garlic and stir to combine and cook for 1 minute.

  5. Add the Broth and stir to get all of those delicious browned bits off the bottom of the skillet.

Recipe Notes

This recipe is intentionally simply and short on herbs because I really wanted to let the natural sweetness of the tomatoes and the browned flavor from the chicken be the star.  The basil at the very end as garnish is a nice fresh burst of flavor.  However, feel free to also add basil to the sauce and mix it in before you cover it to simmer.
