Ingredients

  • 3 medium red bell peppers roasted, skinned and diced
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 9 large eggs
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter melted
  • 1 1/2 cups Medium Cheddar Cheese grated
  • 1 cup whole-milk ricotta
  • 1 cup Parmigiano-Reggiano grated
  • 3 green onions finely chopped (1/2 cup)

Instructions

  1. To roast your own red bell peppers: Roast peppers on racks of gas burners over high heat, turning with tongs, until skins are blackened, 10 to 12 minutes. (Or broil peppers on a broiler pan about 5 inches from heat, turning occasionally, about 15 minutes.) Transfer to a bowl and cover tightly with plastic wrap, then let stand 20 minutes.

  2. When cool enough to handle, peel peppers, discarding stems and seeds, and cut into 1/3-inch dice.
  3. Or purchase red bell peppers at the olive bar or in jars in the olive section of the grocery store. - Big Time Saver.

  4. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  5. Sift together flour, salt, and baking powder into a small bowl.
  6. Beat eggs in a large bowl with an electric mixer at medium-high speed until doubled in volume, about 3 minutes. Add butter, flour mixture, and cheeses and mix well at low speed, then stir in peppers and green onion.

  7. Pour into a buttered 8 x 8 casserole dish and bake in middle of oven until top is golden brown and a tester comes out clean, 30 to 40 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.

  8. To serve, cut in squares and garnish with a dollop of sour cream and fine chopped heirloom tomatoes.
