Loved this! The combination of the ricotta, tomato and spinach tastes really nice. I'm thinking of adding Chorizo when I next make this...

This was a great idea for me to use up what I had in the fridge. Like previous comments, I roasted the cherry tomatoes first. I used feta and added some leftover new potatoes too. Tasty and healthy.

Added chilli flakes to egg mixture and peppers to onions but still didn't really enjoy this. Bit too eggy for me, personally. Other people at home ate and enjoyed though!

Didn't have any fresh spinach or cherry tomatoes so used frozen spinach leaves (which I pre-cooked in the microwave) and thick slices of large slicing tomatoes. Absolutely delicious as was the leftover slice eaten cold the next day. Would make a great picnic dish.

I made this yesterday and it went down really well. Next time I would make sure that the spinach was on the bottom and place the tomatoes so that they don't end up in one place when the egg has been added

Very nice. I followed the recipe but deseeded the tomatoes and it didn't seem too moist. Just right!

I'm not a fan of ricotta, any other suggestions I could try?

This is the first time I had tried a frittata in the oven, and it worked really well. I used feta and cut up a few larger tomatoes I had and it wasn't too wet, just right. I would definitely make this again, but maybe with a tad more pepper.

This was delicious! I halved the amount of cherry tomatoes and put in some sun-dried which went really really well! Definitely going to be adding this to my regular meals. It's also easy to halve the portions too. Taking the leftovers to work for lunch tomorrow.
