  • Prep time 15 minutes
  • Total time 25 minutes
  • Portion size 2 servings

Ingredients

Filling:
  • 2 slices prosciutto (24 g total)
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons cumin seeds
  • 1 small shallot , thinly sliced
  • 2/3 cups fresh or frozen green peas , thawed
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh basil
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
Omelette:
  • 6 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons homogenized milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (optional)
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup light ricotta cheese
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh basil

Method

Filling: In 10-inch nonstick skillet, cook prosciutto over medium heat, turning once, until crisp, about 3 minutes; drain on paper towel and set aside. Wipe pan clean with paper towel. Heat oil and cumin seeds in same skillet over medium heat until fragrant, 1 to 2 minutes. Add shallot; cook, stirring often, until translucent, 3 to 5 minutes. Stir in peas, basil and lemon zest until warm, about 30 seconds. Scrape into bowl; set aside. Wipe pan clean.

Omelette: In separate bowl, whisk eggs, milk, salt (if using) and pepper just until blended but not frothy. In same skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Pour in egg mixture; cook, gently lifting edge with spatula to allow uncooked egg mixture to flow underneath, until almost set, 4 to 5 minutes. Dollop ricotta on one half; cover with pea filling. Gently fold remaining half over filling. Slide onto platter; top with remaining basil and crumbled prosciutto. Serve immediately.
