Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray a 9" cast-iron skillet with nonstick cooking spray. Melt butter in skillet over medium-high heat. Add onions and spinach to skillet, and cook until tender. Stir in prosciutto and set aside. In a large mixing bowl, beat together the eggs, half & half, ricotta, salt, and pepper. Pour egg mixture into skillet. Cook the eggs, using a spatula to gently push them towards the center of the skillet. When eggs are almost set, stud frittata with tomato slices and sprinkle with basil leaves. Place skillet in oven and bake for 10 minutes, or until eggs are fully set. Gently run spatula around and under the frittata to remove from skillet and place onto serving dish. Garnish with torn prosciutto slices and chopped basil leaves before serving.
