Tip

This is a very basic recipe I made for my daughter who is only just starting to experiment with adapting recipes. It can be modified and changed in many ways.

Try adding bacon, ham or smoked chicken to the dish before adding the egg mixture.

Try adding more onions to the bowl and using olive oil/balsamic to caremalise them before adding the eggs and ricotta.

Try adding silverbeet/spinach with some nutmeg instead of the basil and tomato.

Possibilities are endless.

    Made this last night very tasty. tmrc_emoticons.) Added bacon as suggested, for a little extra saltiness. I'm still learning the ropes with my TM so was a bit confused with some of the missing instructions, maybe if the author could update (I just had a guess):

    -'fry" onion and garlic for 3 minutes Speed 3 (what temperature?)

    - place pumkin into varoma tray and cook at Varoma for 20 minutes (which speed?)

    That's fantastic, I'm so glad you enjoyed it! This recipe was a base for my daughter to work with as she's only new to making up her own recipes. She's been doing the same thing - adding a bit of this because she had it in the fridge or a bit of that to try it - she's vegetarian so the bacon isn't an option for her.

    Thanks for a great recipe. I added some diced bacon (about 200g) with the onion and garlic to 'fry' off, and then with the remaining ingredients stage I added about 150g spinach to add some more flavour as well. Yummo!

    This was quite nice but just needed a bit more flavour. I might add some cubed feta next time or some bacon. Great as a base rcipe. Thanks.
