Zucchini Mozzarella Frittata

Frittata’s are versatile, easy, take minimal time, and are delicious! Whenever I have extra veggies in the fridge I love to make a frittata! For this one I just used zucchini, shallots, garlic, mozz, parm, and eggs! The vegetables and cheese can all be substituted to whatever you have on hand or are in the mood for!

Chicken parm meatballs are a yummy staple for dinner. They can be paired with zucchini noodles, high fiber chickpea pasta or just with a side of vegetables! They are versatile and super easy to make. I actually made them while I was getting ready for a night out!
