Goats Cheese and Pesto Frittata

Frittata is a traditional Italian egg based dish, very similar to an omelette. If you cant find a firm goats cheese, this deliciously tangy frittata will work just as well with feta cheese. It can be eaten hot straight from the oven but is probably best served at room temperature to allow the flavours to mellow.
