Cheesy Tomato Basil Frittata

Frittata is the classic version of omelette… I love to make frittatas quite often for my breakfast and lunch box… They are nutritious and delicious way of consuming all the vitamins, vegetables and proteins. A frittata is a Mediterranean dish which is a baked omelette. An all time meal for any time of the day…As one can make this in no time.
