  5. Add the egg mixture, cheese and parsley, and let it cook for a bit, stirring occasionally to form some big curds. When the egg starts turning opaque, but there is still enough egg left to smooth off the top when you shake the pan, place the pan in the preheated oven.

  7. Remove the frittata from the oven and let it rest for 5 minutes. This allows the residual heat gently cook the egg through. Use a spatula or thin butter knife to separate the Frittata from the edge of the pan. Shake the pan from side to side to free the bottom of the pan and invert onto a cutting board to slice.
