Italian Frittata

I love to find meals that are quick and easy to make, and so when I needed a simple meal this week, I thought about  making omelettes, but instead chose to create a great frittata (Italian omelette) recipe instead. This recipe is good for 3-4 people, and I made it in my 8 inch cast-iron skillet. I now absolutely love making frittatas! They are going to be one of my new go to meals when I need something quick and easy to fix for dinner!
