  • 1 (16 oz) pkg frozen chopped spinach
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 (20 oz) bag shredded hash brown potatoes
  • 2 tsp paprika
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1 cup ricotta cheese
  • 1 (7 1/2 oz) jar sundried tomatoes

1. Preheat the broiler. Defrost the spinach and pat dry with paper towels.
2. In a large skillet with an oven-proof handle, heat oil over high heat and fry the potatoes with paprika and salt (in moderation) for 4 min.
3. Beat eggs with half the ricotta cheese. Season with salt (in moderation) and pepper to taste. Pour egg mixture over the potatoes and reduce heat. Cook the omelet for 10 min. or until edges are set.
4. Place skillet in oven for 2 min., or until omelet is completely set, browned and puffy (watch it carefully, so it doesn’t burn).
