Ingredients

1
cup
fresh spinach
2
egg whites
1
egg yolk
1/8
teaspoon
black pepper
3
tablespoons
part-skim ricotta

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 350° F.
  2. Pour about 1/2 inch of water into a small saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Fit a steamer basket in pan. Place the spinach in the steamer, cover, and steam until the spinach is wilted, 1 to 2 minutes.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together the egg whites, yolk, and pepper. Stir in the steamed spinach. Pour the mixture into a 6-inch nonstick ovenproof skillet.
  4. Top with spoonfuls of the ricotta and bake 12 to 15 minutes or until set. Using a rubber spatula, slide the frittata onto a plate; sprinkle with more pepper (if desired).
