Roasted Red Bell Pepper and Goat Cheese Frittata

Another weeknight meal that is quick and easy. We came across this in one of our Weight Watchers magazines. It sounded so good we had to try it. And yes it does taste as delicious as the picture looks!

WW Points: 4 (1 wedge)

2 large eggs
4 large egg whites
2 tbsp chopped chives
1/2 tsp salt, divided
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper, divided
4 tsp olive oil
1 c chopped roasted red bell peppers
4 green onions, chopped
1 tsp minced garlic or 2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 c (2 oz) crumbled goat cheese

Preheat broiler with rack in middle of oven.

Combine eggs, egg whites, chives, 1/4 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp pepper in a bowl, stirring with a whisk or fork until combined.

Heat oil in an ovenproof skillet over medium heat. Add red bell peppers, onions, garlic, 1/4 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp pepper; saute 2 minutes. Pour egg mixture over vegetables. As mixture starts to cook, gently lift edges of frittata with a spatula and tilt pan so uncooked portion flows underneath. Cook 2 minutes; remove from heat.

Sprinkle cheese over frittata. Broil for 2 minutes or until frittata is set and lightly browned. Cut into 4 wedges. 1 wedge = 1 serving. Pair it with your favorite fruit for a light meal.
