Summer Vegetable Frittata

This delicious frittata is chock-full of luscious summer produce like tomatoes, zucchini, and peppers. If you don’t have an oven-proof skillet you can avoid the broiling step by covering the pan with a lid after the frittata finishes on the bottom, removing it from the heat and allowing it to sit for a couple of minutes. It reheats well so it can be made a day or two ahead of time.
