Frittata with Scallions

Frittata is a wonderful snack in Italy which is used for an appetizer, for breakfast or whatever. It’s mostly used to recycle  any leftover you’ve got in the fridge like string beans or zucchini. I’ve even known people who make spaghetti frittata (which isn’t my thing really). The good thing is it’s quick, it’s wonderful and can be served warm or cold. It’s versatile, so every family in Italy loves it.
