  1. Wendy,

    I believe frittata is something like an omelette which uses very little flour or none at all, am I right? Anyway, my son who dislikes zucchini said that this slice tasted very good :-)

  2. Veronica,
    Actually I have never eaten nor made any fritata before :p
    I hope to try this if I see zuchinnis on sale.
    They are very expensive here compared to cucumbers, 5X the price, and they are grown in Camerons, not imported.

    On the contrary, cucumbers here are sometimes much dearer than zucchinis. Try this out and let me know how you like it, ok?
