Penne Frittata with Basil and Ricotta

This was a delicious and unique dish
that was featured on Martha Stewart.

I didn't have a oven-proof skillet,
so I would suggest baking it the entire time in a glass baking dish.

Makes one 10-inch frittata; Serves 10 to 12

  • 6 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 1/2 cup fresh ricotta cheese
  • 1/4 cup finely grated Parmesan cheese
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 3 cups cooked and drained penne rigate pasta (from 7 ounces dry)
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • Garnish: fresh basil


Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Whisk together eggs, milk, ricotta, Parmesan, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Stir in cooked pasta and chopped basil.

Heat a 10-inch ovenproof skillet (preferably cast-iron) over medium heat. Add oil; swirl to coat bottom and sides of skillet. Pour in egg mixture, and cook until edges are just beginning to set, about 2 minutes. Transfer skillet to oven, and bake until eggs are completely set, 10 to 12 minutes. Invert onto a plate, and re-invert onto a serving dish. Let stand for 5 minutes. Cut into wedges. Garnish with basil.
