Mushroom Spinach Frittata

1 tbsp (15 mL) extra virgin olive oil
3 tbsp (45 mL) finely chopped shallots

Meanwhile beat eggs in a large bowl; stir in cheese, if using, and salt and pepper.  Add cooled vegetable mixture and stir until mixed. Pour mixture into pan and bake for about 30 minutes, or until top is lightly browned.  Let stand for 10 minutes before cutting.
