WHAT IS A FRITTATA?
If you are not familiar with frittatas, don't be scared to make one. Frittatas are simply an Italian egg-based dish similar to omelettes or crustless Quiche.
The great thing about frittatas is that you can add lots of interesting ingredients and make it a whole meal in a pan. This is a good way to get more veggies into your diet.
Frittatas are a great change if you are sick of eating plain eggs.

HOW TO MAKE A WEIGHT WATCHERS SHRIMP FRITTATA
I love that this is a quick and easy recipe. It is perfect for busy week night dinners.
STEP ONE: VEGGIES
Start off by chopping the bell peppers into very small pieces. Mince the cloves of garlic.
Saute the peppers and garlic until they are softened.
STEP TWO: ADD SHRIMP
Take the can of tiny shrimp and drain off all the excess liquid. Add the shrimp to the skillet with some salt and pepper to taste.
Cook for another minute or so.
STEP THREE: ADD EGGS
In a small bowl whisk the eggs and a pinch of salt and pepper.
Add the whisked eggs to the skillet spreading it evenly in the pan.
STEP FOUR: ADD RICOTTA
Now add the ricotta cheese to the skillet by dropping teaspoons of ricotta on top of the eggs throughout the pan.
STEP FIVE: COOK
Go ahead and lower the heat to low. Cover the pan and let the mixture cook for about 10 minutes or until the eggs are set up.
STEP SIX: SERVE
Let the frittata cool for a few minutes after it is done cooking. Once a little bit cool, run a spatula under the edges to loosen from the pan.
Cut it into four equal pieces and serve warm. This is great with some fresh parsley and a dash of hot sauce!
