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.
