Meatless Monday...Zucchini Tofu Frittata


This high protein, low carbohydrate tofu casserole is packed with vegetables and plenty of vitamins and minerals! It makes for a filling dinner and the leftovers are great for breakfast. I served mine with homemade noodles and marinara, but had it with salsa and a slice of toast the next day. The flavors are pretty versatile so the choice is up to you!
