in a nonstick 10 inch skillet with an ovenproof handle, heat the olive oil over moderate heat for 1 minute.
Add the green onions and cook, uncovered, until soft about 5 minutes.
Add the garlic, zucchini, tomatoes, basil, thyme, and pepper and cook, covered, until the zucchini is just tender about 3 minutes.
In a small bowl, whisk together the egg and egg whites; blend into the vegetable mixture in the skillet and sprinkle with the cheese.
Place the skillet in the oven and bake the frittata, uncovered, until just set about 5 minutes.
Raise the oven temperature to broil and place the skillet in the broiler 5 to 6 inches from the heat; broil for 2 to 3 minutes or until the frittata is golden.
