There is nothing like Michele Romano's recipe for spinach frittata Italian style. Made with fresh vegetables in season (if possible), mushrooms and fresh farm eggs, spinach frittata is a wonderful and very nourishing way to start out your hectic day.
A frittata is Italy's famous version of an open faced omelet. The difference is, unlike an omelet it is cooked on both sides (fried on one, broiled on the other). Frittata is kind of like a healthy breakfast pizza (without all the dough). Left over Frittata? No problem. Have it later for a healthy snack or reheat for next mornings breakfast. There are numerous frittata combinations, so it is fun to use your creative imagination when making them. Children, (like my 3 year old grandson) love them because they are like a pizza in shape and depending on your choice of ingredients, can taste similar to pizza as well. Especially when I add capicola and sliced Italian salami from the meat shop, topped off with fresh sliced tomatoes! Make it with meat or make it vegetarian. Spinach Frittata is one of my favorite Italian breakfast recipes
