Recipe: Parmesan and asparagus frittata

Today I’m cooking a perfect light, summer dish. I love a frittata – so easy to make and often with whatever I have in the house, avoiding any waste. It can all be thrown into one pan to produce a taste sensation. I was inspired by the fantastic Italian cheeses I received from Vorrei so […]
