How To Make Zucchini Frittata

  • 2 small garlic cloves
  • 1 tbsp olive oil (for sautéing)

  6. When the egg is almost fully cooked, add the grated Parmesan on top and place the pan in the broiler for 1 minute.

  7. Take the pan out of the broiler, let it cool and set in the pan for 5 minutes.

  8. Once cooled, invert a plate on top of the pan and turn over. Slice and serve.
