Clean the zucchini, cut off the ends and discard. Slice the zucchini into
round half-inch pieces.

Rinse the capers and remove the salt.

Break the eggs into a bowl and scramble them. Grate the cheese, mince
the capers and add them to the eggs along with a few twists of ground
black pepper.

Heat a skillet over moderate heat, add enough olive oil to coat the bottom
of the pan, then add the squash and fry until golden brown on each side.

Add more olive oil if necessary, then pour in the egg mixture, and cook
thoroughly, turning from time to time. When the eggs are thoroughly
cooked and lightly browned, transfer to a plate and serve warm or cold.

Add more grated cheese if desired.
