Frittata with Pancetta, Ricotta, and Greens


12 ounces pancetta, cut into 1/2 to 3/4-inch pieces
1 cup sliced shallots
12 cups (packed; 12 ounces) assorted coarsely chopped greens (such as kale, rucola, chard, and mustard greens)

12 large eggs
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1 cup freshly grated Parmigiano cheese, divided
12 ounces fresh whole-milk ricotta cheese (about 1 and 3/4 cups)


Preheat oven to 350°F.

Cook pancetta in 12-inch diameter ovenproof nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until crisp.

Using slotted spoon, transfer pancetta to paper towels to drain.

Pour pancetta drippings into bowl; reserve.

Return 2 tablespoons drippings to skillet.

Add shallots and saute over medium heat until golden, about 4-5 minutes.

Add half of greens and toss until beginning to wilt, about 1 minute.

Add remaining greens and saute until wilted, tender, and dry, about 15 minutes.

Transfer greens to plate; cool.

Rinse and dry skillet.

Beat eggs and salt to blend in large bowl.

Whisk in 3/4 cup Parmigiano cheese, then greens and half of bacon.

Stir in ricotta, leaving some clumps.

Heat 1 tablespoon reserved drippings in skillet over medium heat.

Pour in egg mixture; spread greens evenly.

Sprinkle remaining bacon and 1/4 cup Parmigiano cheese over eggs.

Cook over medium heat until frittata is just set at edges, about 10 minutes.

Transfer to oven and bake until just set, about 20 minutes.

Cut around frittata to loosen; slide out onto platter.

Let cool 30 minutes.

Slice into wedges and serve. Makes 6 servings.
