How to Make It
  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C) and grease a 9 x 13 in (23 x 33 cm) baking dish with 2 tbsp olive oil. In a large, non-stick sauté pan, heat 1 tbsp olive oil over medium heat. Add the sausage and stir, using a spatula to break up the meat. Once the sausage starts to brown, cook for 3 to 4 minutes. Spread the cooked sausage evenly in the prepared baking dish.
  2. To the same pan, heat remaining 1 tbsp olive oil over medium heat. Add the onion and sauté for 2 to 3 minutes. Add the bell pepper and zucchini and cook for another 3 to 4 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables have softened. Add the kale and stir until wilted, about 1 minute.
  3. Evenly distribute the vegetables over the sausage in the baking dish. Sprinkle the torn basil over top.
  4. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs until whites and yolks are well combined. Whisk in the half and half, mozzarella, and Italian seasoning, and season with salt and pepper.
  5. Pour the egg mixture evenly over the sausage and vegetables and bake for 25 minutes, or until the eggs are set and the top is beginning to brown.
  6. To assemble the meals, cut the frittata into 6 pieces and place in meal prep containers.
