If you want to enjoy Italian Recipes. A range of healthy meals that also taste delicious, Italian cuisine has plenty to offer. Not only are they flavorful and rich in nutrients, you don’t have to be an Italian chef to make them. Here’s a rundown on a few favorites Italian Recipes.

Italian Recipes:- Oven-Baked Onion-Cheese Frittata 

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil 
  • 1 small onion; minced 
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese 
  • 6 eggs 
  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano 
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg 
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt 
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper 

Heat oven to 350°F. Sauté onion in oil until golden. Stir beaten eggs and all other ingredients into the pan. Mix well. Pour into a greased glass baking dish and bake for about 30 minutes, or until set and top is golden. NOTES : Parmesan and sautéed onion baked into eggs. Technically a frittata is partially fried in a skillet, but I never liked the extra browning of the eggs. I prefer the gentle approach, more like a quiche without a crust. Try other goodies in your oven frittata: cooked potatoes, artichoke hearts, peppers, sausage, spinach and Parmesan, ham, mixed summer vegetables and cheese.
