      Time to clean out those leftovers? Use some to make a frittata!

      Cheesy Leftovers Frittat
      2 teaspoons smart balance spread
      ½ cup sliced onion
      ½ cup sliced red bell pepper
      ½ cup sliced zucchini, or other veggies
      2 small plum tomatoes, diced
      1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil
      pinch freshly ground black pepper
      ½ cup liquid egg substitute
      ½ cup 1% cottage cheese, or ricotta, or that bit of cream cheese
      ¼ cup fat-free evaporated milk
      ¾ ounce shredded reduced-fat monterey jack cheese
      coat an ovenproof 10” skillet with cooking spray and place over medium-low heat until hot.

      melt the spread in the skillet. add the onion, bell pepper, and zucchini and saute over medium-low heat until the vegetables are lightly browned, 2-3 minutes. add the tomatoes, basil, and black pepper to the skillet and stir to combine.

      cook until the flavors are blended, 2-3 minutes, and remove from the heat. preheat the broiler. in a blender, combine the egg substitute, cottage cheese, and milk and process until smooth.

      pour the egg mixture over the vegetables. cover and cook on medium-low heat until the bottom is set and the top is still slightly wet. transfer the skillet to the broiler and broil until the top is set, 2-3 minutes.

      sprinkle with the cheese and broil until the cheese melts. serves 2 = ABOUT 230 calories, depending on what’s in your refrigerator.
