Special ingredient: Ricotta

Ricotta is why this frittata recipe is so moist and delicious. Ricotta adds a creamy texture that enhances the flavors of all the other ingredients. You’ll get plenty of calcium and potassium with ricotta along with vitamins A, B6 and B12. This nutrient rich ingredient is a great source of protein, but it also is high in saturated fat.
