I made this for dinner the other evening. It turned out really good. I added shredded cheddar to the top after it had cooked for about 15 minutes. Added a tossed salad at the table. The whole family enjoyed it … picky teenagers and all :)

Gorgeous, I love how any garden veggies are perfect in a frittata I also love making one with my leftovers to make the next day’s dish more exciting!

Yummy! Added grated cheddar cheese to the top after 15 minutes in the oven. Continued baking until cheese was melted and bubbly. Enjoyed by all – including picky teenagers.
