I was looking for a fabulous breakfast to satisfy my cheese craving, I certainly found it with this Ricotta Frittata.  I served it over a my Oven Roasted Tomato Sauce and it was delicious.  Each piece only has about 175 calories, so I had two and called it a full meal.

This was a special treat for me, Mr. W and Em wouldn’t eat this.  Em doesn’t like eggs right now (a texture thing) and Mr.W doesn’t care for ‘fluffy cheese’ although I don’t think he would pick it out in this frittata.  The cheese melts into the eggs and they become this creamy and luscious combination, with nutty notes from the Parmesan cheese and incredible flavor from the onion, garlic and marjoram.  This is one you have to try!  Buon Appetito!!!
