SPINACH AND RICOTTA FRITTATA

This is one of my favourite 'on the run' recipes. It is so quick and simple to make, but still really tasty and filling. The eggs and ricotta cheese pack a protein punch and there are a couple of vegetables in there to keep me happy! I have brought it along to friends houses for lunches and afternoon teas, taken it to work with a salad for lunch and sent daughters off to school with a slice for their lunch or snack. The simple mix of flavours makes it a winner with everyone!
