Spring Vegetable Frittata

Spring Vegetable Frittata

 This frittata is great, not only because it’s a healthy dish of vegetables and protein, but because it doesn’t need much of any one item.  It’s a great way to use up that partial bunch of asparagus or half tub of mushrooms left over from earlier in the week as I did here.  Asparagus and mushrooms are great in the spring, but as we move through the seasons, flip out what ever is leftover in your fridge.
