Tortilla de Calabacín (Spanish-Style Omelet with Zucchini)

Total time: 25 minutes
     Zucchini is everywhere in summer!  If you don't have it in abundance or simply don't want it, you can substitute fried, sliced potatoes, sautéed onions or sliced tomatoes. Everything else stays the same.  You can trim the rind off of the Brie, or not.  I didn't.  It left interesting white strips on top of the omelet.  I don't flip this omelet because the Brie gets rather runny ...which is why it's so good!  You can use another, harder cheese - cheddar, Gruyère if you prefer.  If you have some left - breakfast or lunch tomorrow!
