Arugula salad and spinach frittata

Eat your greens - they are good for you!

We just got our first  fresh picked, full of vitamins,  produce bag from La Nay Ferme - a local organic farm. It has baby veggies (carrots and turnips) and lots of greens, including spinach and arugula. I went searching for recipes and found these two winners for dinner tonight. Every plate was licked clean.

from March 2013 Sunset Magazine
(original recipe has swiss chard - I substituted spinach)

2 Tbs olive oil
2 Italian turkey sausages (8 oz total), casings removed
1/2 cup each sliced red bell peppers, sliced mushrooms, and chopped onion
1 bunch Swiss chard, chopped
8 large eggs
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/4 tsp salt

Preheat broiler with rack set 4 inches from heat. Heat oil in large ovenproof frying pan over high heat. Cook sausage, stirring often, until browned, about 3 minutes. Add bell pepper, mushrooms, and onion and cook until vegetables are softened, about 3 minutes. Stir in Swiss chard, reduce heat to medium, and cook, stirring occasionally, until wilted, about 10 minutes (less for spinach).

Meanwhile, whisk eggs in large bowl until they start to foam. Stir in cheese and salt. Pour mixture into pan with vegetables; cook on stove until bottom sets, about 3 minutes. Broil until firm and browned.
