In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, salt, pepper, herbs and 1/4 cup of the grated cheese. Set aside.

In a 10-inch nonstick sauté pan, heat olive oil over medium heat and cook onions and zucchini until barely tender. Add tomato and stir briefly. Pour egg mixture over sautéed vegetables, gently stirring vegetables around until they are covered by eggs. Reduce heat to low, cover and let cook for 12—15 minutes or until eggs are barely set and a little loose on top.

Turn on broiler. Top eggs with remaining cheese and broil for 2—5 minutes or until lightly browned and bubbly. Let cool slightly then slide onto a serving plate. Cut into wedges.
