In Spain, tortilla most commonly refers to an omelet, not the flat bread we know. This variation on the classic adds spinach to the basic egg-and-potato combination. Add a tomato salad as a side dish and this would make a perfect brunch dish. It is best served at room temperature. This is a recipe I have yet to try. It is from the Weight Watchers-1996- Cut The Fat Cookbook. Therefore prep/cooking times are approximate. This recipe is 2pts if you are doing Flex, and it is a CORE recipe.

I have this recipe in my Ww cookbook and made it last night. It was a little bland, only because the recipe is bland. I will make it again because it's a low-fat, low-cal side dish that's better then just steamed veggies. I tossed on some Cabot 50% light cheddar cheese (awesome low -fat, low-cal cheese). Next time I might try some fresh grated Romano for some flavor. I was hoping other people could test this recipe and fiddle with the flavor by using different spices and herbs as I am not a creative cook.
This recipe has beautiful table presentation! I found it to be a little bland however I will make it again and offer up a few toppings (salsa, cheese) to compliment.
Made a nice supper. I did follow other reviewers' suggestions and added more seasonings: garlic salt and a lot of pepper. I did not bother to cook the spinach - just threw a couple handfuls of fresh spinach and stirred it in. Mine did not hold together, but I think I used fewer eggs - I subbed 4 whole eggs for the egg substitute. It would be good with sliced mushrooms and/or diced red pepper! I also added about half cup of shredded colby cheese. Made for PAC spring 2014
