    Suzanna Marie's Note:

    DH and I have never eaten, let alone made, a Frittata. "Healthy Life Magazine: Greater Binghamton, NY's Source for Family Health" is a free quarterly found in doctors' offices, grocery stores, etc. The Spring, 2009 issue carried this recipe. DH and I decided to finally take the plunge and were quite pleased with the outcome/taste. He's more of a veggie human than me, but we both love cheese; so, this satisfied both of us.
