  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 shallot, diced
  • 1 cup cremini mushrooms, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 8 large Pete and Gerry's Organic Eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 to 3 cups baby kale or spinach
  • 1 1/2 cups cooked pasta
  • 2/3 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese, plus more for sprinkling
  • 3 to 4 cups spring greens (or more baby kale or spinach)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons freshly squeezed lemon juice


Step 1

Preheat the oven to 350F.

Step 2

Heat an oven-safe skillet (about a 10-inch) over medium-low heat. Add 1 1/2 tablespoons butter and once melted, add in the shallots and mushrooms with a pinch of salt and pepper. Stir in the garlic. Cook until softened, about 5 minutes.

Step 3

While the onions are cooking, whisk together the eggs, salt and pepper. Stir in the 2 to 3 cups greens, pasta and Parmesan until combined.

Step 4

Add the remaining 1 1/2 tablespoons of butter to the skillet. Pour the egg mixture into the skillet. Use a spatula to stir and even everything out. Let it cook for 5 minutes.

Step 5

Place the skillet in the oven and bake for 10 to 15 minutes, or until the center is set.

Step 6

While the frittata bakes, whisk together the olive oil and lemon juice with a pinch of salt and pepper. Toss the greens with the olive oil + lemon juice.

Step 7

Remove from the oven and serve with the dressed spring greens and extra Parmesan!
