Arugula and Asparagus Frittata

While I was spending endless days/nights in Kansas City with work, our neighbors and family would often feed my sweet hubby.  After one of my trips Andy couldn’t stop talking about some Spinach Frittata dish that he had at Celine and Doug’s house one evening.  He liked it sooo much he had Celine write down the recipe.  This was about a year ago, I finally got around to making it this week!  A few small adjustments in the ingredients, and we had a nice, light, simple and delicious dinner. I served it with a warm hunk of french bread, sweet berries, and a nice Chardonnay.  Thank you Celine for inspiring another great meal at 488!

Bon Appetit!
