Zucchini & Mushroom Frittata

Did you over buy on vegetables this week? Perfect solution... toss them in with some eggs for a healthy meal.

Often times I don’t look at what vegetables this recipe calls for or quantities. If I am at the end of a week and have leftover vegetables I will make a frittata. Sometimes I roast the vegetables instead of sautéing them.
