Make

  1. Heat oven to 400F / 204C degrees.
  2. Heat a 9” to 10” (22.5 cm to 25 cm) skillet over medium heat. Add cooking oil and then squash and asparagus with a pinch of salt. Saute until vegetables are tender, 4 to 5 minutes.
  3. Pour in egg mixture. Stir until all ingredients are evenly distributed. Transfer to the oven and bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until a knife comes out cleanly.
  4. When frittata is nearly finished cooking, whisk together vinegar and mustard. Add olive oil while whisking. Toss arugula and walnuts in dressing right before serving.
  5. Slice frittata and serve with salad on the side. Enjoy!

It was really good !! Should have added a bit more salt probably but otherwise, a great meal ! And not that heavy feeling of the usual heavy cream carbonara. Here, it still feels like a light meal and i actually love the lemon zest in the recipe !

It was good. I didn't drain the bacon grease at all, and I don't regret it. I think I got the sauce right. But I think a big portion of my sauce was bacon grease. This was a very filling meal. I sprinkled some chopped green onion on top. This was not a great idea. Won't do that again.

Followed the recipe exactly but the sauce didn't turn out creamy. It still tasted alright but the pasta was quite dry.
