Frittata di Zucchine Gialle e Provola

Giallo, tutto giallo. My past few posts have all been yellow and this one is tutto giallo, not one speck of red, not one speck of green, maybe a little white and a little brown, but the rest is yellow. These yellow zucchini are very popular in my kitchen, so pretty and so delicious, I am loving them.

Frittata di Zucchine Gialle e Provola

  • 3 yellow zucchini, thinly sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled and crushed
  • 3 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/4 cup of smoked mozzarella, cut into cubes
  • 1/4 cup grated parmigiano reggiano
  • salt to taste

Wash and thinly slice zucchini. Heat 2 tbsp of the oil in an 8-inch frying pan over medium-high heat and add the whole cloves of garlic. When garlic starts to sizzle add slices of zucchini. Sauté zucchini over high heat for about five minutes or until they start to brown, lower heat to a medium flame. You need to make sure to turn the zucchini frequently so that they don’t burn.

When they are perfectly golden, remove from the heat.

Meanwhile beat the eggs and toss in the parmigiano, combine. Toss into the pan with the zucchini and shake the pan to distribute the egg evenly. Heat the pan back up to a low to medium flame. Drop the smoked mozzarella into the egg mixture and cover for about 5 minutes, shaking the pan occasionally to make sure it doesn’t stick.

Place a plate on top of the pan and reverse the frittata so it falls onto the plate, you can also do this with the pan’s lid if it is fairly flat and not bowl-like. Slip the frittata back into the pan and cook the other side for about 10 minutes, until it browns.

Transfer the frittata onto a plate that is lined with paper towels to soak up the oil, sprinkle with salt and place paper towels on top, pressing with your hands to soak up any additional oil.

It is best served at room temperature, but still tasty hot if you can’t resist.
