I've often been accused of being Italian, although I'm not, I love anything Italian...this Fritatta is no exception. The added sauce really set it off. This would be a great entree for Brunch or for a vegetarian. I was going to add some Italian sausage , then realized I was fresh out. I hope you try this yummy recipe sometime.

Enjoy!
