Eggs with tomatoes and courgettes

Eggs with tomatoes and courgettes

Melting courgettes with tomatoes and onions into which the eggs are slid carefully, without breaking the yolk, and cooked gently.

The secret of success in this recipe is to combine the tomatoes and courgettes when they are really soft, and cook the egg white, leaving the yolk still runny.
