Ingredients

  • 1 pound small yellow crookneck, trimmed and cut into 1/8-inch thick slices
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary leaves
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 6 large eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 cup whole milk ricotta cheese
  • 1/2-ounce grated Parmesan

Directions

Watch how to make this recipe.

Heat the oven to the high broil setting. Set a rack in the oven 3 to 4-inches from the broiler.

In a medium bowl toss the sliced squash with the oil, rosemary, salt, nutmeg and pepper. Lay the squash in a single layer on a cooling rack set inside a foil lined half sheet pan. Broil until the squash is golden brown on 1 side, about 8 to 10 minutes.

Whisk the eggs, ricotta, and Parmesan together in a medium mixing bowl. Put the squash in a 10-inch nonstick, oven-safe saute pan set over medium heat. Pour the egg mixture into the pan and stir with a silicone spatula to make sure egg gets under the squash. Cook without stirring until the egg mixture has set on the bottom and begins to set on top, about 4 to 5 minutes. Put the pan under the broiler until lightly browned and puffy, about 3 to 4 minutes. Loosen the frittata from the pan by moving a rubber spatula around the edges. Slide the frittata onto a plate or other serving dish, and cut into 6 servings. Serve warm or at room temperature.
