It's summer time and the summer squash has come rolling in. Since I was home alone last night I decided to have a fritata for dinner. My Grandma introduced me to fritatas my first tip to California when I was 14 years old. Since it was late in the day when I flew in and she knowing I needed a good dinner she made a fritata. She was the secretary for a high mucky muck in the California state government. Can't remember the title off the top of my head. Anyhow she had a long work day and wanted to make something easy too. It was very easy....vegetables, eggs and cheese. It was also very good.
My fritata started off with a dash of olive oil. I threw in 2 sliced yellow crookneck squash. Normally, I'd also cut up an onion and mince some garlic. It was just me and I wanted simple. I stir fried the squash. I added garlic powder, onion powder and some Lawry's Season salt. Then I stirred up two eggs and poured it over the top of the squash right there in the skillet. I sprinkled some parmesan cheese over the top of it all. While I waited for the egg to set I microwaved some leftover basil sauce I had made the night before with chicken, spinach and feta sausage sliced into it. I had about 1/2 cup leftover.
The fritata was so thin since it was one serving that I scraped it out of the pan and it looked more like a scramble on the plate. I didn't care. I spooned my hot basil sauce over the top and it was a dinner fit for a King. 368 calories.
