Asparagus and Tomato Baked Frittata

Asparagus and Tomato Frittata

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.

Buen provecho!

    I made this frittata for Easter brunch. Everyone loved it. It was easy and delicious. I baked it in a ceramic pie plate so it went from oven to table. I really like the fact that you do not pre-cook the asparagus; it comes out a little crunchy and not soft and over cooked. I will definitely make it again.
