Bit too eggy and underseasoned for me.

Very simple to make and delicious. Will definitely make it again and my veggie friends will love this.

I wasn't impressed with the results of this recipe, it didn't taste quite right and I ended up throwing half of mine away. Though the other half thought it tasted great and finished his!

Forgot to rate and say that I added some chilli flakes to the egg mixture.

Made this tonight and was delicious - even despite my altering it ever so slightly. Added bacon to the mixture and didn't have any cherry tomatoes so used ordinary ones. As I was only cooking for me and had the meal own its own I used three eggs, but the same amount of spinach. Also can't stand ricotta so used the chedder.

I thought this was quite ok for a midweek tea... didn't notice any problems with 'sogginess'.

This was amazing! The ricotta really complemented the egg. Next time I will try sunblushed or sundried tomatoes as I found the cherry ones went a bit soggy, but besides that Loved it!

Was nice, but like Teresah found the tomatoes made it a bit soggy?

showed my 15 years old daughter how to make this, was very easy, added some smoked bacon lardons as well, used spinach and basil from our garden and eggs from our chickens... went down a treat with the whole family.

I really liked it! It was very easy and quick to make. I couldn't find ricotta so I made it with feta. It worked really well!
