Zucchini Ricotta Frittata

It's seriously as much fun to eat as it is to say! I just adore Elise's site, Simply Recipes. Not just for all her tasty food (though, thats enough!), but because of her engaging commentary. I feel like I know her family, understand why they eat what they eat, and I look forward to seeing what they come up with on a daily basis! Sure, you all read what she has to say, too, but I can still get my Elise fan-girl going. :)

So. Where should I start? This is an excellent way to use up all of your stray zucchinis and yellow squashes AND!!!! if you don't eat it with bacon (like we did), its pretty healthy! We had this meal right before we left on our trip to Vegas a few weeks ago... and I'm hoping I get more zucchinis in our CSA this week, so I can make it again!

Another reason I liked this recipe is because it gave me an excuse to use my mandoline again. I don't know what happened. For the longest time, I saw so many recipes that would have benefited from my having a mandoline, so I got one... and now, I barely use it. (I hope this doesn't happen with my nifty new torch!!!!)

The recipe says it serves 2 to 3, and it means it. Yah, it looks big, but its thin... and delicious... so the less of you there are, the less you have to share!!!

You can find the recipe on Elise's site - I didn't change it one bit!

This looks really good. I have always loved making frittatas for a quick weeknight dinner. This one looks like a winner!

That looks great. I've had my mandoline in my cupboard for nearly 6 months now, and I am still afraid to use it (?!) You've inspired me!
