With roasted veggies, asiago cheese and plenty of dill, this frittata is packed with spring flavors. It looks impressive, but it’s really a snap to make. Diane Higgins — Tampa, Florida

"This has become a "go to" regular"

MY REVIEW

"I didn't have asiago so I used 1/2 the amount of parmesan. I'm making it again without mushrooms and doubling the asparagus. The dill is awesome."

"Sorry, we didn't care for it at all."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 6, 2010

"This is one easy recipe that is foolproof. Slices beautifully (just like in the picture) and perfect for summer company. I increased the asparagus to one cup and used shredded cheddar. I felt decadent having 2 servings for lunch with salsa."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 28, 2010

"I could easily make this an Easter brunch tradition. This is delicious and I'm not usually a big fan of egg dishes. It was also an easy prep. Great flavor and texture too!"
