Nice combination of veggies, good flavor, and very easy to follow instructions. However, the fritatta came out very greasy (literally a layer of oil on top even after cooking). I will try to make this again though, cutting the olive oil in half.
HERE is the way to do it and love it! [Thanks, AW, for warning me about the olive oil over-kill] First, I used young patty pan squash julienned rather than zuchini, doubled the mushrooms and used PAM Olive oil spray. Also used 1 1/2 cup of Veggie Shreds romano style soy cheese, as we have milk protein allergies in mi casa. Did NOT add the fresh garden tomatoes until serving- then diced and piled them on top of each serving for a colorful visual effect. Tasted so good my husband actually groaned out loud!
