In an effort to eat more vegetables while busy being a parent, I've whipped up a frittata that we can enjoy for breakfast, lunch, or dinner! It's loaded with veggies and is a breeze to make after a busy day with the kids.

Keep in mind, local farmers markets have opened for the season, and you can substitute items in the recipe to include anything they have available. Some of our recent finds: yellow squash, red potatoes, green beans, purple peppers, and more!


At Macaroni KID, we skip the fluff and get straight to the good stuff. No need to scroll through pages of unnecessary content — our recipes are easy to find. Now let's get cooking!
