Eggs are a go-to ingredient for breakfast, lunch or brunch. And Volare Ristorante's Josh Moore has an upscale twist that will impress your family. He says serving spinach, crab and goat cheese fritatta may sound fancy, but it's a very easy dish to throw together.

Spinach, crab and goat cheese frittata

5 oz baby spinach

8 oz jumbo lump crab meat

1 yellow bell pepper, roasted, peeled and seeded

2 Tbs exvoo

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

2 teaspoons minced garlic

12 large farm fresh eggs

3/4 cup half-and-half

1 tsp. chopped basil and Italian parsley

1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese

2 tablespoon unsalted butter

1/3 cup chopped scallions, white and green parts (3 scallions)

1/2 cup crumbled goat cheese

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Heat the exvoo in a sauté pan. Next add baby spinach, crab meat and roasted yellow pepper toss till spinach is wilted and set aside. In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, half-and-half, Parmesan, herbs, salt, and pepper. In a 12-inch ovenproof sauté pan, melt the butter and sauté the scallions over medium-low heat for 1 minute. Add the crab and vegetables to the pan and toss with the scallions.
