My Italian mother-in-law taught me to make this omelet years ago—she would make it for breakfast, lunch or dinner and eat it on Italian bread. This is one of my favorite ways to use up leftover broccoli. —Mary Licata, Pembroke Pines, Florida

"This was delicious and so easy to make. I substituted cheddar cheese for the Romano because that's what I had on hand. I calculated 6 points for WW, so for me, it's light. I served it with salad and fruit, so it made a nice meal. A keeper for sure."
