I have been loving all the late-summer zucchini and tomatoes. Two of life’s small/great pleasures, right there. I seriously can’t get enough this year. Today’s recipe was inspired by this zucchini pie with burst tomatoes I saw over on How Sweet Eats that I immediately wanted to make. Alas, I was out of a few of the key ingredients (milk, flour) and was about to go out of town so it wasn’t really a convenient time to restock. It turned out to be a blessing in disguise—this frittata has quickly become a meal-prep favorite that takes almost no time to throw together. Enjoy it for breakfast, lunch, or even dinner!
