I am always looking for something a little different to throw into a frittata, I had a potato and Italian eggplant I needed to use so I decided to see how it works. I roasted the potato,eggplant and tomato until the potato and eggplant browned and the tomato caramelized. I really like parsley so I rough chopped some parsley and grated some piave vecchio cheese and the result is a rustic and delicious frittata thats easy to put together. I started it on the stove and finished in the oven, Great for a quick meal with a salad or soup. —sdebrango

I have loved to cook for as long as I can remember, am self taught learning as I go. I come from a large Italian family and food was at the center of almost every gathering. My grandfather made his own wine and I remember the barrels of wine in the cellar of my grandfathers home, I watched my mother and aunts making homemade pasta and remember how wonderful it was to sit down to a truly amazing dinner. Cooking for me is a way to express myself its my creative outlet. I enjoy making all types of food but especially enjoy baking,
I live in Brooklyn, NY, and I share my home with my two dogs Izzy and Nando.
I like to collect cookbooks and scour magazines and newspapers for recipes. I hope one day to organize them.
