Ingredients

  • 2

    tablespoons unsalted butter

  • 1/2

    cup sliced shallots

  • 1/2

    teaspoon salt

  • 1

    pound thin spear asparagus, tough ends snapped off, spears cut diagonally into 1-inch lengths

  • 6

    large eggs

  • 3/4

    cup ricotta cheese (can use cottage cheese if you prefer)

  • 1

    Tbsp minced fresh chives

  • 1/4

    teaspoon dried tarragon

  • 1

    cup shredded Gruyere or Swiss cheese

Directions

Cook shallots in butter: Heat butter into a 10-inch oven-proof frying pan over medium heat. Add shallots and cook, stirring occasionally, until they soften and turn translucent, about 3 minutes. 2 Add asparagus and cook for an additional 3 minutes. 3 Add egg mixture: Beat the eggs and ricotta cheese together, stir in the chives and tarragon. Pour the egg mixture into the pan and cook until almost set, but still runny on top, about 4 to 5 minutes. While cooking, pre-heat oven broiler. 4 Top with cheese and broil: Sprinkle Gruyere cheese over the eggs and put in oven to broil until cheese is melted and browned, and the center is set, about 6 to 8 minutes. Remove pan from oven with oven mitts and slide frittata onto a serving plate. Cut into wedges. (Be very careful with the hot pan handle! I usually ice down the handle of any long handled pan I take out of the oven so that no one mistakenly tries to pick up the pan by the hot handle.)
