"I make this all the time, its great!!!! For the other person that had trouble with the egg white sticking , if you have a good nonstick pan your egg whites should be fine when you cook them!! So buy a different pan!!! LOL"

"Great recipe....the only thing I changed was I omitted the salt since the parmesan is quite salty itself. Loved it!"

"I would make this again, as the dish tasted pretty good, but I think I'd scramble the ingredients rather than attempting a frittata. I used my Calaphalon skillet to avoid the eggs sticking to the pan, but they did anyway when I put it in the oven and the frittata didn't turn out pretty at all."
