I just love one dish recipes, and this Zucchini Ham Frittata is definitely a great one. You can add a salad and some rolls to round it out a bit if you’d like. Frittatas are also great way to get those veggies in. If you don’t have zucchini or just don’t like it you can substitute the zucchini for broccoli or spinach or another green veggie that suits your fancy just make sure they are cooked tender before you add the other ingredients.
This zucchini ham frittata works great as a side dish too, just omit the ham (or not).
