      I changed out the cheddar cheese and replaced it with 4tbspn of ricotta whole milk cheese, blended gently with a fork and right before serving placed under broiler ( making sure pan handle is not.in oven) until litely browned. Major differnce on taste - that is the Italian method.

      A perfect centerpiece for a lazy Sunday brunch. I was tempted to add sun-dried tomatoes but held off, and glad I did. As presented, the asparagus really shine through and are well complemented by the cheese, in my case a mix of soy gouda and soy mozzarella. I made a slightly lighter version by replacing 2 of the eggs with 4 egg whites and all the butter with a single tablespoon of fancy extra extra virgin olive oil. (Thank heavens for a good non-stick skillet.) Served with a mixed green and strawberry salad and a roasted tomato sauce on the side. Thanks!

      Wonderful main dish method of preparing asparagus! I add freshly grated parmigiana reggiano and torn basil leaves to mine. Spectacular frittata!
