1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
2. Place the zucchini, peppers and onion on a sheet pan. Drizzle with the olive oil and sprinkle with salt and black pepper. Toss well to coat. Bake for 15 minutes. Add the garlic, toss again and bake for another 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and turn the oven to 350 degrees F.

4. In a 10-inch ovenproof saute pan, melt the butter and sauté the scallions over medium-low heat for 1 minute. Add the roasted veggies to the pan and toss with the scallions. Pour the egg mixture over the vegetables and cook for 2 minutes over medium-low heat without stirring.
5. Transfer the pan to the oven and bake the frittata for 20-30 minutes, until puffed and set in the middle. Sprinkle with the gruyere and bake for another 3 minutes, until the cheese is just melted. Cut into 8 wedges and serve hot.
