Ingredients













Cooking Instructions

1

Heat broiler. Whisk eggs, egg whites, 3/4 cup asiago, salt and pepper in a medium bowl until blended. 


2

Sauté onion and red bell pepper in olive oil in an oven-safe, 10-inch skillet until crisp-tender. Add zucchini; cook and stir until vegetables are tender. Stir in spinach, cooking until wilted. Reduce heat to medium-low. Pour in egg mixture. Lift edges, as eggs set, allowing the uncooked liquid to flow underneath. Cook until eggs are almost set, about 5 minutes.


3

Sprinkle with remaining asiago. Broil 3-4 inches from the heat for 2-3 minutes or until cheese is melted and edges are puffed. Garnish with tomato and basil.


Recipe Tip:
Any brand of Wisconsin asiago cheese can be used.

Asiago was originally made in Italy in both young and aged versions. Wisconsin asiago is more firm and has a distinct flavor from the adjunct culture called lipase, which is added to the milk.
