Strata for dinner?

Featured Recipe: Goat Cheese and Red Pepper Strata
An Egg Strata is perfect for weekend guests or for an entertaining brunch. But I have all but left them out of weeknight dinner possibilities. And it’s been a terrible oversight. Eggs for dinner are a delicious protein option. While preparing a strata ahead and storing in the refrigerator until ready to bake the next day is an obvious benefit, do-ahead work is not necessary to the final delicious egg casserole.
Today’s recipe is smaller casserole than a traditional strata, feeding four generously instead of the 8 to 10 my other recipes do. The leftovers, if you are feeding less than four, are delicious re-warmed with a small salad of greens or fruit. But it’s not so much that you feel like you are eating remains for weeks on end.
The rich flavors of red pepper and goat cheese are perfect any time of day; so don’t delay another moment to enjoy this wonderfully simple and elegant main dish whether it is morning, noon or night.

What you're saying..
I was thrilled to see your column in the Charlotte Observer this morning.
A friend gave me your first book as a Christmas present one year. I use it all the time. Actually, we had Two-for One Noodles last night. I've purchased all your books. When we moved, the cookbooks were packed up in storage. I went out and purchased more just to have them with me! I rely on them so much.
Just wanted you to know I’m a faithful follower.
