This pumpkin frittata recipe has a combination of pumpkin and spinach. A dish with the flavours of autumn, but I munched this happily during spring!
As you may know by now, I love a frittata. As well as being a great way to use up leftovers it is a great lunch/supper dish that is simple and tasty to make. You could add cheese to this, either Parmesan or Feta but I have been eating too much cheese recently so made it without.
The vibrant colours of the orange pumpkin and green spinach make this dish look tempting. I do love a colourful plate of food next to my wine! 😉
