Garden Frittata

I created this frittata recipe one day to use up some fresh yellow squash, zucchini and tomato. It's so easy to make because you don't have to fuss with a crust. Give it different twist by trying it with whatever veggies you have on hand. —Catherine Michel, St. Peters, Missouri

    I really enjoyed this recipe. I’m always looking for ideas to use summer veggies! It’s so colorful! I added extra Parmesan instead of feta.

    Very easy recipe. I didn't use the feta because I didn't have any, but it was still very good. Will make again.

    A great way to cook vegetables. I added some broccoli and omitted feta cheese. Simple to make and very tasty. My family loves it.

    I have made this several times, changed the veggies, depending on what I have.(I fry my veggies instead of microwave) Each time it has been Excellent! Don't be scared to play with cheese, veggies or herbs. Just follow the egg/ milk ratio and no worries!

    Really good... I added more garlic,but still seemed like it needed more seasoning.
