Springtime Frittata


A frittata is similar to an omelet – it’s egg-based and fortified with cheeses, vegetables and meats. This recipe makes the most of fresh asparagus at its peak of flavor. If you can’t find Gruyere, use Swiss cheese. And to cut down on fat and cholesterol, use an egg substitute or separate yolks out of the eggs, and use lower fat cheese.
