cheap, healthy, & DELICIOUS

i made the best dinner the other night.

it was an italian omelette - cheap, healthy, super easy to make, and soooooo good.

i have to share the recipe!

i got the base of the recipe from giada at home, but i decided what to put in it. it's different from a french omelette because you bake it in pyrex instead of cooking it on the stove and flipping it. it's sort of more like a quiche. you can add whatever you like. the one giada made on the show had onions, sausage, red pepper, and gruyere cheese. just take the base recipe and add your favorite fillings we'll probably add fresh basil next time. yummmmmm.

vegetable italian omelette

- 8 eggs
- 1/3 cup milk (i used part heavy whipping cream, part 1%)
- cup and a half shredded swiss cheese (reserve 1/2 cup for top)
- 2 cloves garlic, chopped or minced
- salt & pepper to taste
- italian flat leaf parsley (about 2 tablespoons chopped)
chopped pretty small:
- 1 bunch broccoli (i used crowns only)
- 2 zucchini
- 1 vine ripened tomato, chopped


preheat oven to 425.

sauté garlic in olive oil
add broccoli
add zucchini
add tomato
salt & a little bit of pepper
sauté long enough (don't overcook because it will bake too)

beat eggs & milk together. add cheese & fillings. put in greased square pyrex. pour mixture into pan. top with cheese. bake 25 minutes.

serve hot!
