Edamame Ham Frittata
A frittata is nothing more than an open-faced omelette, and is in fact, much easier to make. It’s also a natural repository for leftovers from the fridge – particularly any kind of pasta. This one uses Edamame, olives and two kinds of cheese. Any combination of cheese will work, preferably a sharp one and one that melts well.
Ingredients 1 tablespoon olive oil
½ cup chopped ham
½ cup chopped onion
1 ½ cups leftover cooked linguine
1 ½ cups cooked Edamame
¼ teaspoon garlic salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
12 chopped kalamata olives
½ cup crumbled queso fresco or ricotta cheese
5 eggs, beaten
½ cup grated pepper jack cheese
