  3. Lightly whisk eggs in a jug with pepper, until combined. Pour eggs over pea mixture in pan and sprinkle with mint, parsley and parmesan and feta cheese.
  4. Remove frittata from stove top. Place under a hot grill for 4 minutes, or until eggs are set and top is browned.
  5. Turn out frittata onto a large serving plate. Cut into wedges, top with pesto yogurt and pepper. Serve with a salad.


Serve warm or cold. For a vegetarian alternative, omit bacon. No need to thaw peas before adding to the pan. If using fresh peas, boil or microwave until tender.
