  • Prep - Preheat oven to 400°F. Drain tomatoes well in strainer, pressing gently to release liquid.


  • Combine - In a 10-inch, ovenproof nonstick skillet, add asparagus and water. Cover and cook over medium heat for 3 to 4 minutes or until tender, stirring occasionally. Transfer asparagus to plate, set aside. Wipe out skillet with paper toweling.


  • Whisk together eggs, milk, salt and black pepper in a medium bowl until blended. Stir in quinoa, 1/2 cup of cheese and 1/2 cup of drained tomatoes.
    Return skillet to stovetop, and spray generously with cooking spray. Heat skillet over medium-high heat just until pan is hot. Pour egg mixture into hot skillet, then arrange asparagus spears on top of egg mixture in a spoke fashion. Place sliced prosciutto between the spokes. Carefully place pan in preheated oven and bake 12-15 minutes or until eggs are almost set.


  • Create - Top frittata with remaining tomatoes and cheese and bake 2-3 minutes longer until cheese is melted and eggs are set. Remove from oven and allow to cool for 2-3 minutes. Slice into wedges and serve.


  • Tip - To ensure your skillet's handle is ovenproof, wrap the handle completely and tightly in aluminum foil before putting it in the oven
