There is a delicacy and refinement about this dish, which is based on a classic French recipe. Shallots, tarragon and a little cream, and a topping of grated cheese, make a wonderful combination with sliced courgettes.

Saut‚ the courgettes in the butter or sunflower margarine until lightly browned and tender, and season with a little salt and pepper.

Sprinkle on the shallots and tarragon and pour in the cream. Heat through for 5-6 minutes, then pour into a serving-dish. Sprinkle the grated cheese over the top and brown quickly under a hot grill. Serve garnished with a sprig of tarragon.
