Healthy Asparagus and Tomato Frittata

healthy frittata-2

As you guys know, I’m so NOT a cook.  But since I do work from home now, and I am in the middle of August Anarchy, I’ve been making a bigger effort to cook almost every meal at home.  The other night I was looking at Instagram and saw Sydne posted a photo of what looked like a frittata, but apparently was, in fact, NOT a frittata.  Regardless, her photo inspired me to use the veggies that I had in my fridge, asparagus and tomatoes, to make a delicious high-protein meal.  Here’s the recipe, which I adapted from a Better Homes & Gardens recipe.
