    Oh yum, that sounds gorgeous! Unfortunately my recipes are more along the lines of "chuck it in a pot and see what happens" Looking forward to more!

    Honestly I'd up the cheese & put some in the sauce too, probably add another 40 cals a portion but worth it. Was nice though x

    Right I'm doing this one this week. My husband will spend all his time looking for the meat...
    Could you use skimmed milk do you think?

    Recipe was originally skimmed but I don't do skimmed milk ;) I think maybe do some meat & use it as an accompaniment as it's not really a mans meal although hubby enjoyed it (he'll be in the fridge eating raw chicken by 9 ;))

    Yeah please do!

    Btw I reckon in the frittata you could leave the cream out making it lower cal & fat, really don't think it added anything to it
