  • Lightly coat an 8-inch nonstick skillet with cooking spray; heat over medium-high heat. Pour in egg mixture; reduce heat to medium. Cook, without stirring, until egg begins to set. Using a spatula, gently lift edges of set egg, tilting skillet to allow uncooked egg to run under set egg. Continue until egg is cooked through but is still shiny. Remove from heat.

  • Arrange roasted pepper and cheese on half of the omelet; fold unfilled half over filling. Gently slide omelet out onto a warm plate. Sprinkle with black pepper. If desired, top with additional roasted pepper and cheese and serve with orange wedges.
