My frittata makes a marvelous light meal. especially during the summer. When I prepare the frittata for guests, I also serve rice and bread to make a hearty meal—quick and easy, but it always wins compliments! —Gwen Clemon, Soldier, Iowa

      Delicious. Just what I wanted. I followed the recipe closely but added sauteed red pepper and jalepeno for a kick.
