In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, basil, oregano, salt and pepper. Fold in spinach, tomatoes and onion.

Coat non-stick skillet with olive oil spray and place over medium heat.

Pour mixture into skillet and cook on medium-high.

As eggs begin to cook, use spatula to lift edges of eggs, allowing uncooked egg to fill in under cooked parts.

Reduce heat and cook for about 6 minutes, or until the eggs are set. If desired, transfer frittata to preheated broiler for 2 minutes to lightly brown the top.

Remove and let cool for 5 minutes before slicing and serving.

Pair frittata with a serving of fruit and enjoy!
