Heat 2 tbsp. of oil in a heavy medium skillet over medium-high heat. Add zucchini, 1 tomato, mushrooms, onion and garlic and saut until tender, about 3 minutes. Add olives and herbs. Cool. Preheat broiler. Beat eggs and 1.5 cups cheese in large bowl and season with salt and pepper. Mix in vegetables and pasta.
