Italian Frittata | Omelette

Paleo friendly: Italian Frittata | Omelette

My husband is Italian, so on our journey with the Paleo lifestyle can be very hard on him at times. He misses his mom’s cooking, the Italian tastes, and flavors which is usually on some type of carbs. This recipe really hit home with him, it has most of the ingredients and has the taste he is missing. I make this for us for breakfast. I usually make a lot and then refrigerate the rest. you divide it out like pizza slices and reheat it in the microwave or oven.
