Zucchini and Prosciutto Frittata

Frittatas are one of my favorite meals to make and are easy to whip up for a speedy mid-week dinner. A frittata is a type of Italian omelette with additional ingredients such as meats, cheeses, and vegetables. They make a great antipasto and are just as delicious the next day for breakfast or brunch. What a colorful dish to serve!

2 Main Ingredient: Egg Zucchini Proscuitto Cuisine: Italian



1 tablespoon olive oil

2 small zucchini, finely sliced

1/2 red pepper, seeds removed and chopped (optional)

1 onion, finely chopped

70g prosciutto, chopped into pieces

2 small potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced

4 large eggs

100g Parmesan, grated


If you don't have prosciutto, don't fret, there are plenty of prosciutto substitutes out there. You probably have ham or bacon in your fridge, these will do. You can also substitute the prosciutto with Capicola or Pancetta.
