Another recipe from my celebrity recipe collection, for yours.

- Pour egg mixture into skillet; stir briefly.

This was very tasty, the ingredients complimented each other to give an over all pleasant flavor. I would rather have baked it so it would have an even consistency. Pouring the eggs into the skillet and giving them a stir made them seem almost like scrambled eggs. The recipe was enjoyed by all but I was critical of the appearance when I served it. I will make this again but I will pour the eggs over the veggies in a casserole dish bake it until set then add the cheese and asparagus continue baking until the cheese has melted, decorate it with the basil & serve
