Ingredients
  

  • 2 tsp extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 1 medium red bell pepper, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/4 tsp crushed red pepper
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 14-ounce can artichoke hearts, rinsed and coarsely chopped
  • 1/4 cup cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tsp teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 tsp teaspoon salt, or to taste

Instructions
 

  • Heat 1 teaspoon oil in a 10-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add bell pepper and cook until tender, about 2 minutes. Add garlic and crushed red pepper; cook, stirring, for 30 seconds. Transfer to a plate. Wipe out the pan.
  • Whisk eggs in a medium bowl. Stir in artichoke hearts, Parmesan, oregano, salt, pepper and the bell pepper mixture.
  • Set a rack about 4 inches from the heat source; preheat the broiler.
  • Brush the pan with the remaining 1 teaspoon oil; heat over medium heat. Pour in the egg mixture and tilt to distribute evenly. Reduce the heat to medium-low and cook until the bottom is light golden, lifting the edges to allow uncooked egg to flow underneath, 3 to 4 minutes. Place the pan under the broiler and cook until the top is set, 1½ to 2½ minutes. Slide the frittata onto a platter and cut into wedges.
