  • 8 eggs
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 12 ounces Italian sausage, crumbled (uncured)
  • ½ large yellow onion, finely chopped

  • ¼ cup freshly-grated Parmesan cheese
  1. Preheat oven to 350º F.
  2. In a medium-sized bowl, whisk eggs, then stir in 2 tablespoons olive oil. Set aside.
  3. In an oven-safe skillet over medium heat, sauté sausage and onions in one tablespoon olive oil until onions sof-tened and slightly browned and sausage fully cooked. Add salt and pepper.
  4. Add the spinach, stir and cover until wilted, generally about 2 minutes. Add the ricotta cheese, mushrooms, and salt. Pour in egg mixture and mix together well. Cover over low to medium heat for 3 minutes.
  5. Remove cover, sprinkle Parmesan cheese over top and place pan in oven for 20 minutes.
