    bluemoon downunder's Note:

    This pumpkin, pumpkin seed and asparagus frittata makes an ideal breakfast, brunch or luncheon dish. It can also be cut into wedges and served - warm or at room temperature - as finger food, or enjoyed at a picnic or for easy take-to-work lunches. To make this a vegetarian dish, omit the bacon. The cooking time below does not include the time for cooking the pumpkin, so you need to add this if you are cooking the pumpkin at the same time you are making the frittata.
