Broccoli, Pancetta, and Parmesan Frittata

This was a pretty disappointing dish.  It was a bit dry, which was fine, but it lacked flavor.  It needed salt, which if you look at the ingredients, you'd go, "Really?"  And it needed more cheese.

The positives were that for 2 servings the calories weren't horrendous, and it came out of the dish pretty.  But I wouldn't have again.

Broccoli, Pancetta, and Parmesan Frittata

Baked frittatas are like overstuffed omelets that you don't have to worry about flipping. To save time, you can microwave the broccoli florets in a covered microwave-safe bowl at HIGH for 2 minutes or until crisp-tender.
