Instructions

  1. Lightly spritz a griddle pan with cooking spray, and place over a high heat. Griddle the courgette slices - in batches - for 1-2 minutes on each side until well charred. Set aside.
  2. In a large jug or bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, goats cheese, 2 tbsp pesto and plenty of seasoning. Stir through the peas.
  3. Lightly spritz a nonstick oven-proof frying pan with the cooking spray. Add the shallots and cook for 3-4 minutes until softened, then add the garlic and cook for another minute.
  4. Lay half the courgettes on top of the shallots, then pour over the egg and pea mixture. Lay the remaining courgettes across the top then cook for 10-12 minutes, or until almost set. Meanwhile, preheat the grill to medium high.
  5. When the frittata is just beginning to set, pop it under the grill for 3-4 minutes until golden brown.
  6. To serve, allow to cool slightly then cut into 4 wedges. Garnish with a side salad and fresh dill.
