Zucchini Frittata with Mint


Sauteed zucchini and shallots are simply seasoned with salt and pepper before joining the eggy, mint and Parmesan-flecked filling for this easy frittata. Because this recipe is highly adaptable, you can also add whatever ingredients you like. The hardest part, really, is flipping the frittata halfway through cooking. Prepared on the stovetop, it's all-but-built for a quick weeknight dinner or a leisurely weekend brunch. Serve this dish with a peppery arugula salad that's lightly dressed in lemon vinaigrette.
