  1. This is a great basic recipe. Frittatas are great as breakfast, lunch, or dinner, which is so awesome. Love the asparagus in this frittata.

    • Frittatas are one of my favorite meatless easy meals – and I love to use any veggies in the fridge (or from the garden) that need to be used up. This recipe can be easily adapted for a veggie on hand. The more the better!
