~ Italian Vegetable & Orzo Frittata~ Cassies

Cassie *


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.

  1. In an oven proof skillet ( a good seasoned iron skillet is what I use. ) saute onions, pepper, mushrooms, broccoli over medium heat, until tender.
