Baked Asparagus and Pepper Frittata


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. and butter a 13" x 9" x 2" glass baking dish (3-quart).
  2. Trim asparagus and diagonally cut into 1/4"-wide slices. Cut bell peppers into 1/4" wide strips and mince shallots. Slice zucchini lengthwise in half and diagonally cut both zucchini and scallions into thin slices.
  3. Have ready a bowl of ice and cold water. In a large saucepan of boiling salted water blanch asparagus 1 minute and drain in a colander. Immediately transfer asparagus to ice water to stop cooking. Drain asparagus well in colander and pat dry.
  4. In a large skillet cook bell peppers and shallots in butter over moderately low heat, stirring occasionally, until peppers are softened, about 10 minutes.
  5. In a large bowl whisk together eggs, cream, parsley, salt, and pepper. Stir in asparagus, bell pepper mixture, zucchini, and scallions.
  6. Pour custard into baking dish and bake in middle of oven until golden and set, about 35 minutes.
  7. Cool frittata on a rack. Frittata may be made 1 day ahead and chilled, covered. Bring frittata to room temperature before serving. If desired, loosen frittata from edges of pan and slide onto a platter.
