Spinach Chicken Frittata

"When we were growing up, spinach was one of the only vegetables my brothers and I enjoyed," recalls Paula Tuduri, Bozeman, Montana. "So our mom found all kinds of ways to include it in meals. This dish is one of my favorites. Be creative," she suggests. "Feel free to vary the vegetables, cheeses and meat to suit your tastes and budget."

    This was really delicious. I threw in a few sliced grape tomatoes that needed to be used up. I will absolutely make this again. It couldn't be easier and everyone loved it! Next time I think that I am going to try crumbled feta instead of Parmesan cheese and see how that comes out.

    This is very good. A simple weeknight dinner that cooks up quickly. I had my boyfriend makes this one as I had to work late. He suggested using a non-stick skillet and cooking it low and slow as it stuck to the bottom of the skillet and browned a little too well. I liked it that way.

    I used chopped ham instead of chicken and it went very well with the spinach. Since I had frozen loose leaf spinach in a bag, I thawed just what I needed in the microwave. With the red and green, it would make a nice, easy Christmas breakfast.
