Asparagus and Tomato Frittata…simple, seasonal and absolutely delicious.
Asparagus are in season so, they are cheaper and fresh! This a tasty and wonderful vegetarian breakfast or lunch dish. Try it!
When you are buying asparagus, look for firm stalks. The cut end should look freshly cut and not too dried out. The length of the stalks should be all or mostly green. And, cook the asparagus as soon as possible after you buy them.
