Other frittata recipes I love are Light Swiss Chard FrittataMushroom Shallot Frittata and Caramelized Onion, Zucchini and Red Pepper Frittata.

To make this low fat frittata I’ve replaced most of the eggs with egg whites. For convenience I usually buy Trader Joe’s cage free liquid egg whites, but you can use Egg Beaters or separate them yourself if you prefer. When buying parmesan cheese, I like to buy Parmigiano-Reggiano, it has a sharp, strong-flavored, nutty taste. Inferior versions of parmesan can have a bitter taste.
