My Sicilian Aunt Paulina inspired this fluffy frittata. I remember visiting her garden, picking fresh veggies and watching her cook. Her wild asparagus frittata was my favorite. —Cindy Esposito, Bloomfield, New Jersey

"Frittata is my new favorite egg dish - it cooks without needing constant attention!We used a little less onion and a little more mushroom (creminis) as a matter of personal taste and added a little garlic."
