Spinach Frittata with Zucchini, Sun-Dried Tomatoes, and Goat Cheese

Zucchini frittata with sun-dried tomatoes, spinach, and goat cheese is a wickedly flavorful breakfast, perfect for sharing with friends and family!

 

When I’m making breakfast for guests, I almost always make a frittata or breakfast casserole . There’s just no denying the palatability and satiety of a nice egg dish that’s infused with goodies!

I recently whipped up this frittata for my brother and his life companion a few weekends ago, and they absolutely destroyed it. Okay, okay, my brother destroyed it…his lady is blessed with self-restraint around food.

Lack of self-restraint around food runs in our family.

Anyhoo.

This frittata is quite the crowd-pleaser! I’ve made it on numerous occasions with slight variations on the cheese selections. It’s one of those nutritious breakfasts you can put on repeat over and over for your family, because: vegetables. It also happens to make an awesome make-ahead breakfast for those of us busy folk who have no qualms about eating the same meals throughout the week!

So let’s do this!

Since my Mediterranean Salmon in Parchment Paper is one of my all-time favorite recipes on this site AND I have a deep love for pesto, I figured I would simplify the parchment paper salmon concept and just go with pesto.

Revolutionary? Nay. But friends, you NEED this!

The salmon turns out so crazy tender in this application and the whole thing is a melt-in-your-mouth experience.

I made the pesto sauce using what greens I had in the refrigerator: spinach, basil, and dill. I used what nuts I had in the pantry: almonds and pistachios. The end result? A flavorful herb salmon with just the loveliest nutty crunch.

Hypothetical situation: You have a massive hankering for something pesto-y, but don’t have any pesto on hand, nor do you have basil to make your own pesto. But you do have spinach!

Hypothetical situation #2: You have kids who love pesto sauce but don’t enjoy eating leafy greens. In walks: spinach pesto.

Case in point: I wanted to make pesto salmon a couple weeks ago, but found the basil in my refrigerator had gone bad, and I didn’t have any pesto sauce on hand; however, I did have a huge tub of spinach.

So I gathered up some nuts from the pantry and tossed them in my food processor with spinach, dill, and oregano – essentially whatever I could find that was pesto-appropriate.

Oh hey! How was your first week of 2019?

For those of you who made resolutions, I hope they are coming along swimmingly. And if you haven’t stayed fully on track with your goals or aren’t currently where you want to be this very moment, remember to take whatever it is one decision at a time.

One meeting, one class, one nice gesture, one meal, one workout, one step at a time.

For those of us who are Big Picture people, resolutions or goals can seem incredibly daunting and insurmountable. In my experience, this is a sign I’m laser focused on something too large and need to take a moment to break it down into steps. Once it’s dissected, the process seems so much more doable and even pleasurable.
