Frittatas are one of my favorite things to make on the weekends since they are simple to put together, fast, and incredibly versatile. Not only can you put virtually anything in a frittata, you can eat it for any meal, and its good hot or cold. That's my kid of recipe and having one in the fridge saves me when I am too busy to cook something. Lately I have been really loving Italian flavors and fell in love with this simple Italian Frittata. It's filled with onions, garlic, cherry tomatoes, roasted red peppers, arugula, and of course some cheese. Everything starts in a skillet on the stove top and is finished in the oven. If you have a cast iron pan, I recommend using that but if not any large, oven safe skillet will work.
