Well here we are at the end of our first Cooking with Astrology meal. I hope you have enjoyed the concept behind the meal as much as I have! Breakfast for our astrological cancer is a fluffy Italian Frittata…..
layered with zucchini, potatoes, sun-dried tomatoes, mozzarella cheese topped off with a light basil sauce…..YUM! I will be making this again many, many times in the future. All of the flavors work together beautifully and are not overpowering…..
and that basil sauce drizzled on top, just takes it to a whole new level! I think the key to getting your Frittata to cook evenly, is to get your vegetables as thin and uniform in size as possible. I did not feel like digging out the mandolin, so I just used my trusty chef knife and it worked just fine…..
even better, I didn’t slice open any of my fingers this time! I chose leeks instead of onions because our cancer friends are ruled by their stomachs, and leeks aid in digestion. I’m sure an onion would work just fine if you don’t have leeks on hand. The sun-dried tomato was left over from the Italian Seafood Pasta the night before. In fact, I thought of the tomato at the last minute and tossed it in after the zucchini and potatoes had already started to cook 🙂
I will be back next month with a “royal” menu fit for a king! That’s right, next month is Leo and their symbol is a Lion…..the king of the jungle! Since my first thought was John Stamos and he is Greek, I think we may have a Greek inspired meal coming up. Happy Birthday to all of my Cancer friends (JillyQ), and as always…..Enjoy!
