I had so much fun whipping up this easy Frittata Primavera, if you're looking for a quick and fabulous brunch dish, this is it! Enjoy!

Ingredients:
3/4 lb. fresh asparagus, trimmed, cut into 1-inch lengths
1/3 cup chopped red peppers
8 eggs
2 Tbsp. water
1/2 tsp. salt
4 oz. (1/2 of 8-oz. pkg.) Philadelphia® Cream Cheese, cut into small cubes
Directions:
Heat oven to 350°F.
Cook and stir vegetables in 10-inch ovenproof skillet on medium-high heat 3 min. or until crisp-tender.
Beat eggs, water and salt in medium bowl with whisk until well blended. Sprinkle cream cheese over vegetables in skillet; cover with egg mixture and vegetables.
Bake 30 min. or until frittata is puffed and golden brown. Yield: 8 servings.

Variation: If you don't have an ovenproof skillet, cook vegetables in regular skillet as directed. Beat eggs, water and salt in medium bowl with whisk until well blended. Add vegetables and cream cheese; mix well. Pour into 9-inch pie plate sprayed with cooking spray. Bake as directed.

Creative Leftovers: A frittata is a great way to use up leftover vegetables and cheeses in your refrigerator. Cut soft cheese into small cubes or shred hard cheeses before mixing with other filling ingredients before pouring into prepared pie plate. Be creative and unafraid to try something new!
