Print Asparagus and wootton dairy millstone frittata

This vegetarian spring-time frittata of tender asparagus and fresh, tangy sheep's cheese is an good speedy lunch or dinner. Wootton White is an excellent light sheep's cheese with a salty tang. It pairs beautifully with asparagus, but use another crumbly sheep's cheese if you like. This is good warm and at room temperature and needs nothing more with it than a green salad and maybe some bread.
