Low Calorie Sausage and Mushroom Frittata

Low Calorie Sausage and Mushroom Frittata

Garden Zucchini

I have more zucchini in my garden, than I can eat, already, and it’s only May.  I am always trying to think of ways of using them in my recipes. This is one way of getting lots of tasty vegetables for breakfast, whist keeping the calories down. You can also add a sprinkle of spinach or bell peppers.

Pasta Free

This super low calorie frittata doesn’t have left over pasta in it.  I wanted to keep the calories down.  I am not sure if it really deserves to be called frittata, but omelette  doesn’t work and it’s not scramble. If anyone can enlighten me, please leave a comment.
