This egg-based Italian dish – similar to a crustless quiche – is an easy, fulfilling meal. This quick and simple recipe makes a fluffy-textured, flavorful masterpiece out of everyday ingredients. Frittatas travel well too, so you can take them to school or work for lunch or a snack.

  • 1 Tbsp green pepper (finely chopped)
