Roasted red peppers and Italian seasoning are a great counterpoint to the artichokes and cheese in this omelette.

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons grated nonfat or regular Parmesan cheese

Directions:

  1. Coat an 8-inch nonstick skillet with nonstick cooking spray, and preheat over medium-low heat. Add the egg substitute, and cook without stirring for about 2 minutes, or until set around the edges. Sprinkle with the pepper and Italian seasoning.
  2. Use a spatula to lift the edges of the omelette, and allow the uncooked egg to flow beneath the cooked portion. Cook for another minute or 2, or until the eggs are almost set.
  3. Sprinkle the Parmesan over the top of the omelette. Then spread first the artichokes and then the roasted pepper and cheese over half of the omelette. Fold the other half over the filling and cook for another minute or 2, or until the eggs are set and the cheese is melted.
  4. Slide the omelette onto a plate, and serve hot.
