Asparagus Frittata

READY IN: 2hrs
Recipe by ellie_

Delicious for a light vegetarian supper/brunch with spinach salad and fruit for desert. The prep time includes cutting up vegetables and cooking the asparagus. As a time saver I shred the cheese in a food processor and (after taking out 1/2 cup cheese) then the carrots in the same food processor bowl -- they are both added to the other ingredients at the same time.

Simply DELICUIOS, We really enjoyed this for dinner along with a nice green salad.I halved the recipe for just the two of us and had some left over for lunch. I steamed the Asparagus instead of boiling it, other than that I made it as the recipe said,But,used a pie pam to bake it in. Thank you Ellie for another delicious recipe.
