    These were so good. I did not have Monterey Jack shredded cheese so used the Italian blend of five cheeses.

    These frittatas are great for a light dinner. I love the flavor of the vegetables and cheeses. I will definitely make these again. Even my picky 13 year old likes them!

    These were excellent! The leftovers also saved really well for lunch the next day.

    I made this recipe for dinner tonight and it was great! I didn't have zucchini, so I substituted green pepper instead. We'll definitely have this again!
