Summer Squash Frittata

This dish is a wonderful way to cook using what you've already got on hand. Simply sauté garden-fresh zucchini, summer squash, and onions, then whisk in lightly beaten eggs and sour cream. The result is a light (yet substantial) and moist frittata that's chock full of healthy veggies. A sprinkling of fresh basil adds a hint of sweetness and a taste of summer with each bite. This frittata is fantastic warm or cold and can be served with tomato sauce or salsa.
