I really enjoyed the flavors in this frittata and the creaminess the ricotta provides, but I feel like it was a little thin. Perhaps my fry pan was too large so next time I'll prepare this "crustless quiche style" in a pie pan. Thank you for posting! Reviewed for ZWT - 7.

Made this using extra un-used veggies from my fridge. I also didn't have fresh basil so I used dried. It was one of the best dishes ever and a great way to clean out my fridge and not have to throw out small amounts of un-used veggies.

Quick & easy. The only veggie I had was a bag of spinach, but it still tasted good. It fed 2 small kids and 2 grown up. No complaints so I will make it again!
