Frittata with green vegetables

This is an awesome frittata recipe that is heavy on the vegetables. Once again, its based off of Teresa Cutter's recipe. I want to thank her for all of her wonderful recipes, and encourage you to check out her site. As you may have noticed, I been basing a lot of my recipes on hers because they are fantastic. She has a knack for making really good food that's packed with nutrients, and we like similar things.  I wanted to make sure to give her all of the credit she deserves!
