Dear friends,

This frittata is incredible. It's simply amazing. And it's loaded with so many veggies that it's healthy. Really delicious and really healthy -- my winning combination, right? I cannot take full claim for this recipe as it was cut out of the weekly 'Parade' magazine, cooked by my aunt and godmother 'Bunny' and initially enjoyed by yours truly over a holiday brunch. 

I couldn't belieeeeve how luscious the flavors were - light and fluffy - almost like a soufle - but with minimal effort. So, I had to slightly adapt and share with you. I hope you enjoy!
