I have a question about the recipe "Zucchini Frittata with Caramelized Red Onion and Goat Cheese" from Renée Kemps. What's a good substitute for goat cheese?
Are you channeling your best self with this comment? (If you're not sure, check out our Code of Conduct.)

You could try feta cheese.

Maybe some ricotta.

Most goat cheeses are soft, though some of those shaped in logs are aged or smoked and get a bit drier or harder.
Why are you substituting not having it on hand or lack of liking goat cheese it?
If simply not on hand, and you can get/use cotija, haloumi, or ricotta salata.
If you don't like the taste of most goat & sheep milk cheeses, avoid them for fear of wasting the ingredients in the lovely frittata. Substitute with blue cheese, a brined cows milk cheese, even some cream cheese or fresh ricotta.
Last note, if you don't generally like goat/sheep milk cheese, don't give up on them entirely. Try them once in a while, say at a cheese platter, where you're not risking a whole dish.
