    ok, so i completely changed the contents of the frittata to suit what I had in the fridge: I used spicy salami, spinach, broccoli and goat cheese... but it came out great. the eggs WERE light and fluffy, and easier to make than some other recipes that have you use the broiler.

    I made this Tomato-Leek fritatta and i really liked it, i did put cheddar cheeseon 1/3 of it because i like cheddar cheese souffles, so i satisfied 2 cravings; this is a real treat to make a simple yet tasty souffle, without a lot of added calories. thanks. sandra
