In 10-inch (25 cm) nonstick ovenproof skillet, heat oil over medium heat; fry squash, onion and garlic until squash is tender-crisp, about 5 minutes. Stir in spinach.

Meanwhile, in bowl, whisk together eggs, 1 tbsp (15 mL) water, salt and pepper; pour over vegetables in skillet. Sprinkle with Monterey Jack cheese; cook over medium-low heat until bottom and side are firm but top is still slightly runny, about 7 minutes.
