Asparagus and Grape Tomato Frittata

I know it’s not asparagus season yet, considering we’re still in the middle of the polar vortex, but I couldn’t help myself to test a few new spring recipes.

Asparagus and Grape Tomato Frittata

This frittata is sooo yummy, I literally ate it for breakfast, dinner, late night snack, and again for breakfast the next morning. Mmm! The fresh rosemary makes the flavor really elegant.

Asparagus and Grape Tomato FrittataIt took a little longer than I had expected to bake, so just be patient (to reduce oven time, you could cook the entire frittata in an oven-proof skillet over the stovetop for 3 minutes until partially set before popping into oven – I will update the recipe if I try it this way).

Asparagus and Grape Tomato FrittataI love that you have a few meals ready to go with this dish. Just reheat individual servings in a pan over the stove.
