ASPARAGUS, ROCKET AND RICOTTA FRITTATA

olive oil spray

1 bunch asparagus, trimmed and cut into 4cm pieces

8 eggs

1/2 cup parmesan, finely grated

1 cup low-kilojoule ricotta, crumbled

freshly ground black pepper

40g rocket, coarsely chopped

2 tbsp chopped basil

Preheat oven to 180°C. Lightly oil and line a 16cm x 26cm slice pan with baking paper.

Bring a small saucepan of salted water to boil and cook asparagus for 1-2 minutes or until just tender and bright green. Drain and cool in ice-water, then drain again.

In a large bowl, whisk eggs, parmesan and two-thirds of ricotta until smooth.

Season with pepper, then stir in rocket, basil and asparagus.

Pour mixture into prepared pan, making sure asparagus and rocket are evenly distributed.

Dot with spoonfuls of remaining ricotta and bake for 20 minutes or until golden and set.
