1 small red bell pepper, seeded and chopped
1 slice Italian bread, day old, chopped into cubes
2 tbsp. Parmesan cheese, shredded
4 eggs

2 tablespoons low-fat milk

Preheat oven in 350F.

Wilt spinach in a large frying pan. Remove from the heat, set aside.

Heat heavy 10-inch nonstick skillet, spray with cooking spray. Add the bell pepper and onion. Cook, stirring often, until tender. Salt to taste, stir in the chopped spinach and set aside.

Beat the eggs in a large bowl. Add pinch of salt, pepper, milk, Parmesan, bread and   spinach and red peppers mix.
