What Is a Frittata?

Frittata is an Italian dish that is meant to incorporate any leftover vegetables, pasta, cheese etc. and then baked with eggs. Frittata doesn’t mean you go shopping for its ingredients (maybe except the eggs) but rather clean out the fridge and freezer. Going bad veggies, frozen cheese leftovers, going bad cheese in the fridge, too many gifted eggs. Got it?
