Just a single ingredient, ricotta, and herbs such as basil (or mint, or sage, according to the season) to create a full plate with flavor.
I love the frittata cooked in the oven and I mainly use this method of cooking but, if you prefer, you can use the same procedure also for the classic fried frittata.

- 5 sage leaves
- 10 thyme leaves
- 2 large eggs
- Pinch of sea salt
- White pepper, to taste
- 200 g (7 oz) fresh ricotta

- Extra virgin olive oil, to taste
