Delicious and beautiful. I made half the recipe. Unlike many fritattas, this one was not watery at all. Rich and still healthy -- how can one beat that?? It also reheated remarkably well in a very low microwave. The only thing I was uncertain about was the timing of adding the basil. I did add a couple of strips of torn up peppered bacon. Thanks for offering this; it's yummy.

This was exactly what I was looking for. Easy, tasty and in the oven. Today I was too tired for stirring in pots! I love cooking in the oven, this makes the life easier.
I've served this simply with bread. In this way we got a complete meal.
Thanks a lot for posting this recipe. Done for ZWT7.
