Baked Asiago Frittata

 I am not usually a big fan of frittata's but this one is really good!  I am not sure if it the the vegetables or the cheese and sausage, but it was delicious!

2 finely chopped broccoli
1/3 sliced green onions
2 garlic, minced
3  Veggie or regular Sausage Patties
1 dried basil leaves or dried Italian seasoning
1/4 salt
1/8 pepper
8 eggs, beaten*
1/4 cup (1 oz.) finely shredded Asiago cheese or Parmesan cheese
1/4 chopped tomato

1. In 10-inch oven-safe nonstick skillet coated with nonstick spray, cook and stir broccoli, onions and garlic over medium heat for 4 to 5 minutes or until crisp-tender. Remove from heat.
2. Stir patties, basil, salt and pepper into vegetable mixture. Pour eggs over top.
3. Bake, uncovered, at 350° F for 15 to 19 minutes or until set. Sprinkle with cheese. Let stand, covered, for 2 minutes. Sprinkle with tomato. Cut into wedges.
Helpful Hints Don't have Asiago cheese on hand? Substitute finely shredded Parmesan. Both lend a rich, nutty flavor to this Italian-style frittata.
*Note: For a lower fat version, substitute 2 cups refrigerated egg substitute for the 8 eggs.
