Cook spaghetti according to package. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, saute the zucchini, summer squash, onion and garlic in oil until tender. Add ham, peas; heat through. Remove and keep warm.

Reduce heat to low; add eggs to the skillet. Cook and stir until egg mixture coats the back of the spoon and reaches 160 degrees (mixture will look like a soft frothy egg). Drain spaghetti and place in a bowl. Add eggs; toss to coat. Add the vegetable mixture, 1/4 cup cheese, thyme, salt and pepper; toss gently to coat. Sprinkle with remaining cheese.
