Courgette and spinach frittata

Gerla de Boer Fritatta

It is that time of the year again! The courgette plants produce not only delicious and stunning flowers but a lot of courgettes, too. I tend to pick them early, so they are nice and delicate. For this recipe, you can use yellow or green courgettes even squash, but make sure you only use small ones and take the seeds out.
