Spinach, Sundried Tomatoes & Goat Cheese Frittata
Asante, celebrity chef Marvin Woods’ “Coastal Soul” restaurant, opened in downtown Atlanta earlier this month. Chef Wood loves the use of goat cheese in this tart, as it is lower in fat, calories and cholesterol than cream cheese, but still has a rich and creamy flavor.
