Method

  1. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Heat oil in a large non-stick frying pan and cook the onion for 5-6 mins until softened and lightly golden. Add the tomatoes and toss for 1 min to soften.

  2. Remove from the heat, add the spinach leaves and basil, and toss together to wilt a little. Transfer all the ingredients to a greased 30cm x 20cm rectangular baking tin. Take small scoops of the ricotta and dot over the vegetables.

  3. Season the eggs and beat well, then pour over the vegetables and cheese. Cook in the oven for 20-25 mins until pale golden and set. Serve with salad.

Quite nice, had it for dinner last night and will have the rest for lunch today. Made a few adaptations: couldn't find ricotta in my local Sainsburys so used cream cheese instead, and also couldn't get fresh basil so used 1tsp dried. Added garlic and pesto as recommended in the comments.

Not the best recipe I found on this website.. Pretty boring, just like a regular omelette.

Just made this, used lovely soft goats cheese instead of ricotta and plenty seasoning , easy and tasty - what more could you want?

Really easy and great tasting recipe. I also added garlic to the onions once nearly cooked which worked well. Will be using this recipe again!

I would like to try to make this but don't have a 30 x 20cm tin

So can anyone tell me how high the mixture should be in the tin?

I have a smaller square tin

Thanks guys!!

I made a version of this tonight, and it was delicious! I used a lot of spinach and added a red bell pepper. Instead of the ricotta, I used 1 cup feta and 1/2 cup fresh grated parmesan. I seasoned the eggs with just salt and pepper. The dish was plenty flavorful. I didn't have fresh basil, so I sprinkled some basil flakes throughout the dish right before putting it in the oven. And like several other comments, I removed the seeds from the tomatoes. That was a great tip! The tomatoes weren't soggy at all.

I really enjoy this recipe, very easy to make and looks reasonably impressive!

I too think that it's good but needs a bit of a kick as it wasn't as flavourful as i thought it would be. A bit too eggy perhaps, so next time will add some nutmeg to the spinach, add more onion, and whilst i liked the ricotta, i might add some pesto to it. The feta and sundried tomatoes combination sounds good too!

Easy and delicious. Make this as a Sunday Brunch for the family with a green salad w/ honey vinagrette.

Made this tonight as it looked yummy! It tasted fab but I changed a few things. I added chorizo and used mozzarella instead of ricotta. I also used a lot of seasoning for the egg but it still didn't overpower the dish!

Delicious, quick and easy... perfect for midweek!

Made with chorizo, sundries tomatoes and feta cheese - was lovely!

A lovely recipe and very easy to make. I read the previous comments and took on board everything said, therefore I swapped ricotta for feta (as that's all I had), roasted the toms, cooked in chili oil to add a little heat, wilted the spinach in a pan then placed in the bottom of the dish, I also added mushrooms. It was very tasty and I shall definitely be cooking this again. Thank you :-)

Made as a starter tonight. Nice but would maybe try a stronger cheese next time.

Mmm.. I'm now thinking Prosciutto would compliment this better than Chorizo!

Loved this! The combination of the ricotta, tomato and spinach tastes really nice. I'm thinking of adding Chorizo when I next make this...

This was a great idea for me to use up what I had in the fridge. Like previous comments, I roasted the cherry tomatoes first. I used feta and added some leftover new potatoes too. Tasty and healthy.

Added chilli flakes to egg mixture and peppers to onions but still didn't really enjoy this. Bit too eggy for me, personally. Other people at home ate and enjoyed though!
