Zucchini Red Pepper Frittata Cooking Light

The holiday season is so hectic. I’m trying to balance cooking healthy for every day meals at home with enjoying the seasonal treats and cooking projects. Some meals just get lost in the shuffle. I’m looking for EASY breakfasts this week. I found this recipe at Cooking Light and it is a real winner. I can double or triple it for both of us to eat on during the week. It works great paired with a salad for a quick dinner after the holiday programs and PTO meetings!
