Caramelized Onion, Red Pepper & Zucchini Frittata

The challenge this time around was to find a recipe  that uses eggs as the key ingredient. I had an easy time with this one since I’m on a low carb diet and have been eating lots of eggs. I ended up selecting a recipe from Skinny Taste. My mom introduced me to that blog a couple months ago and I’ve tried out a number of Gina’s recipes. They have all turned out great and this one for Caramelized Onion, Red Pepper and Zucchini Frittata is no exception.
