Pattypan Squash and Tomato Frittata

by Michelle on July 25, 2012

Growing up, my mother often made squash and egg frittatas. She called it gagootz and egg, the Italian slang word for squash, and we usually ate them for lunch with crusty bread or sometimes as a side dish with dinner. It was a quick, easy and filling meal, the beauty of which I can appreciate only now that I am a mother too. Summer squash is in abundance at  my local markets and we’ve been grilling them practically every night. A new favorite is the pattypan, a brightly colored little squash that’s as cute as it is tasty. There are a handful on my counter right now and as I contemplated what to do with them, gagootz and egg came to mind.

I wanted to kick the dish up a notch since I also had some delightful local tomatoes and a small bunch of baby arugula to work with. Six eggs is usually sufficient for frittatas, but I substituted 3 egg whites to make this frittata a little healthier. I added the pattypan and tomato to the eggs, but saved the arugula as a topper, which not only made a meal out of the frittata, but also gave it an amazing dash of color. Freshly grated Parmigiano and salt and pepper finished the dish!

Pattypan Squash and Tomato Frittata

Serves 6

1 small pattypan squash, diced

1 medium tomato, diced

3 eggs

3 egg whites

1 small bunch of baby arugula

1 tablespoon olive oil

Freshly grated Parmigiano

Salt and pepper

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In a cast iron or oven proof skillet, saute the squash until it’s just beginning to soften, about 2-3 minutes. Whisk the eggs and egg whites in a small bowl, add the tomatoes, and pour the egg mixture into the skillet. Cook over medium heat until the eggs are set but the top is still runny. Transfer to the oven and bake until the eggs are cooked through, about 5 minutes. Top with the arugula, Parmigiano and season with salt and pepper. Cut into wedges and serve warm.
