Courgette and Goat’s Cheese Frittata

We always have loads of eggs because we have chickens, so fairly frequently I throw together some kind of frittata or tortilla using up whatever vegetables and cheese I have in the fridge. This is one I make fairly often and also as a tart when catering. I hope you enjoy it .
