Good morning! Today a light omelette, baked, with zucchini and zucchini flowers. A dish easy, very easy and tasty, Spring Zucchini, those with flower, and potatoes. In practice it is a sort of omelette, but baked and embellished with very little cream (You can substitute whole milk) and grated pecorino cheese. To me the color already brings joy, and when you get to taste it, then it's the simplicity that is rewarded: is soft, flavorful, soft. And it's also nice, looks like a garden… If served with a mixed salad you'll have a tasty dish but not heavy, Why is baked in an oven and then you save on oil. Happy Spring to all!
Ingredients for 4 people:
- 6 eggs

Preheat oven to 200 degrees static. Wash Zucchini and cut into slices. Peel and wash the potatoes and cut them into thick slices less than half a centimeter. Cook the potatoes in a pan with a little oil, making her first Brown over high heat and then covering with a lid so that tire with the steam will form inside the Pan. Season with salt, pepper and set aside. In the same Pan fry, always with a little olive oil, the zucchini. Season with salt, pepper and set aside. Both vegetables should not be overcooked, but slightly crunchy, because then they finish cooking in the oven.
Beat the eggs in a bowl with the cream (or milk), grated cheese, salt and pepper. Then add the vegetables to the beaten eggs, stirring well, so they are well impregnated with egg. Finally, Add the herb you have chosen, chopped powder.
