Very easy and tasty recipe. I used plum tomatoes that I removed the skin from and diced in place of the cherry tomatoes, but otherwise stayed true to the recipe. Served it with some spinach/cheese tortellini, and it was wonderful. A definite keeper.

Quick, pretty and tasty. I used very small zucchini and tiny cherry tomatoes and served with steak. Simple and good.
