Potato and Red Pepper Frittata

“This recipe is from Everyday Food. The original recipe calls for 2 teaspoons chopped fresh rosemary. I choose to omit it. Being onion lovers, I added a whole onion rather than 1/2 as the recipe stipulated. NOTE: It's okay if potatoes are not cooked evenly. Some will be browned; others only transparent. The original recipe suggests using an 8-inch skillet.”
