Feta, Green Onion, and Asparagus Frittata

This recipe is so easy, and it really comes together quickly! I threw my asparagus in the pan with the shallots and green onions (with no oil or butter, then added the egg on top of that). I didn’t measure out my feta, but just sprinkled a good handful on top. I served this with a green salad and some toast. Yum!
