Baked Frittata With Pesto, Roasted Tomatoes & Goat Cheese

What’s the difference between an omelet and a frittata? Frittatas are baked in the oven, can be eaten hot or at room temperature, and are served in slices! They are often stuffed with cheese, meats and assorted vegetables!

While some frittatas call for meat, this recipe does not, making it low-card, gluten-free AND vegetarian! It’s the perfect breakfast item that everybody will love and enjoy.
