Cook the new potatoes in a pan of boiling water for about 5 minutes until tender. Add the asparagus and continue to cook for 1 minute, then drain and leave to cool.
Heat the olive oil in a non-stick heatproof frying pan (skillet). Add the onion and cook until golden brown, then add the tomatoes and peppers and cook until softened.
Preheat the grill (broiler) to high.
In a jug (large measuring cup), mix the eggs, half the cheese, the cream and a pinch of salt and pepper. Pour the mixture over the onions, red (bell) pepper and tomatoes, then add the asparagus and potatoes.
Sprinkle over the remaining cheese and cook under the grill (broiler) for 5–10 minutes until golden and cooked through. Serve with lamb’s lettuce.
