I was feeling a bit peckish and with it being the end of the week I didn't have much in, so I had a look to see what I did have and came up with this... it's nothing extravagant, but it makes a tasty and filling lunch! Other things could be added, like sweetcorn, garlic, etc., which I would have added had I had them! lol!

This is one of my favourites. A quick and easy way to use asparagus when it's plentiful and in season. The most important thing is to cook the frittata slowly.
