Serves: 4 Servings
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1-1/2 cups lightly packed arugula

  • 4 ounces smoked mozzarella, diced
  • 1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese
  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

  3. Add the sweet potato to the skillet and cook, stirring occasionally, for 3-4 minutes. Add the arugula to the skillet and stir, just until wilted.

  5. Transfer the skillet to the oven and cook for 10-12 minutes, or until the frittata has set.

  7. Cut into equal slices and serve warm.
