Courgette and Pea Frittata

Makes: 4-6
Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 15-20 minutes


  • 175g freshly podded peas (about 450g in pod) or frozen, thawed
  • 4 tbsp Filippo Berio Mild and Light Olive Oil
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 3 medium courgettes, trimmed and thinly sliced
  • 8 large eggs, beaten
  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh tarragon
  • 2 tbsp freshly chopped parsley
  • 25g freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper


If using freshly podded peas drop them into a small pan of boiling water and cook 2 minutes then drain.

Heat a 23cm (9”) non-stick frying pan and add the oil. Cook the onion for about 3-4 minutes over a medium heat until softened then add the courgettes. Fry the courgettes for 5 minutes or until they begin to soften. Meanwhile preheat the grill.

Add the drained peas and herbs to the pan.

Beat the eggs and season then pour over the vegetable. Reduce the heat and cook for about 5 minutes or until the eggs are almost set. Carefully lift and edge of the frittata with a palette knife to check the underside which should be golden.

Scatter the Parmesan cheese over the frittata and put under the grill for 1-2 minutes or until just set and golden.

Cut the frittata into wedges and serve warm or slide onto a plate and serve cold for a picnic with crusty bread.
