Spread zucchini and pepper along bottom of heated skillet. Let cook for about 1-2 minutes until heated through. Pour in egg mixture. Allow to slowly cook, pulling back edges and tilting pan to let uncooked mixture onto bottom of pan. When almost fully cooked, sprinkle in cheese; fold egg in half. Turn off heat and let sit in pan for a bit for cheese to melt.
