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 just had to write to let you both know how much I appreciate your cookbook Desperation Dinners! I bought it about a year ago, and you should see it. It’s in bad shape – splattered, stained, dog-eared and well-used. I’ve bought a lot of cookbooks, and at most, I get one recipe out of it, and then it sits on the shelf.
Your cookbook is really different. I actually use it. I use your cookbook so much, and have sung it’s praises so often, that now whenever I put a good meal on the table, my husband automatically asks, “Is this a Desperation Dinner?
