Chorizo, Ricotta and Thyme Frittata


ChorizoRicottaThymeimg

I had some ricotta left over from the Cannelloni I made at the weekend and after asking my followers on Facebook and Twitter for recipe suggestions (always better and more entertaining than looking through recipe books), I concocted this beaut of a recipe. The ricotta gives it a wonderful lightness, although thanks to the chorizo's meatiness you certainly feel like you've had a meal. If you didn't have any fresh thyme, you could try rosemary....or even a tsp of dried mixed herbs would be fine! Enjoy!
