Salt and pepper

- In a small bowl, beat the eggs, basil, and a little salt and pepper.
- Slowly pour the egg mixture into the pan with the tomatoes and beans. Add the cheese and give it a few stirs. Cover and let cook for 15 to 20 minutes or until the frittata puffs up slightly and is totally cooked on top.
- Place the frittata on a large plate, cool for a few minutes, cut into eight wedges, and serve warm.
