Great in the summertime when zucchinis and tomatoes are at their best.

Zucchini with Cherry Tomatoes

Zucchini and cherry tomatoes form a tasty combination.

Ingredients

1 1/2 pounds small zucchini
1 pint cherry tomatoes, cut in halves
3 tablespoons butter
2 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon sugar
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Instructions

Make sure the zucchini are uniform in size. Wash but do not peel them. Slice them about 1/2-inch thick. Put them in a skillet and add boiling water to cover. Cook this, covered, until barely tender, about 10 minutes. Drain well. Return the zucchini to the skillet and add the tomatoes, butter, lemon juice, salt, sugar and pepper. Toss them gently together to mix. Taste, add more seasoning if necessary. Cover and simmer until the tomatoes are heated through, which should only take about 3 minutes.
