Heat the butter in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Add the spinach, ham, and scallions to the skillet, stirring with a wooden spoon to combine. Cook for 2 minutes, and then pour the eggs over the spinach mixture. Allow the eggs to begin to set, and then add pesto, salt, and pepper. Stir together until eggs are cooked evenly. Serve with favorite breakfast accompaniments.
Add the spinach, basil, garlic, and cheese, if using, to a food processor and begin to pulse on low speed. Slowly add the olive oil while the processor is running. Pulse until the ingredients are blended into a smooth sauce, being careful not to overmix. Season, to taste, with salt.
Pesto can be made ahead of time and stored in the refrigerator for 1 day.
