There is nothing wrong with breakfast for dinner -- it switches up your normal routine and it'll put a smile on your family's faces. While everyone loves eggs, pancakes, waffles and bacon, it's time to try something new.

Frittata's are like a grown-up version of scrambled eggs with cheese. Giada's version is filled with asparagus and tomato and dotted with melted fontina cheese. Since all the ingredients are mixed together, it's also a great time to incorporate vegetables into everyone's diets. After trying this recipe, you'll be making breakfast for dinner more often.

Editor's Note: This recipe is very adaptable. If you have leftover summer squash or other vegetables, roast them up and add to the dish.
