Mom's Cookin': Summer Vegetables with Parsley Sauce

4 new potatoes
2 carrots, cut into 1 inch pieces
1 zucchini, cut into 1/3 inch pieces
8 oz. sugar snap peas
1/4 c. snipped fresh parsley or 4 t. dried
1/4 c. chopped scallions
1 clove garlic, minced
2 T. lemon juice
1 t. minced capers or stuffed olives
1/2 t. black pepper
1 t. olive oil

In large saucepan, steam (or simmer) the potatoes and carrots until they are almost tender, about 15 minutes. Add the squash and peas. Continue cooking until all the vegetables are tender- 5 to 6 minutes. Transfer to a bowl and keep warm. Meanwhile in a small saucepan over low heat, cook the parsley, scallions, garlic, lemon juice, capers, pepper and oil until hot - 3 to 4 minutes. Spoon over the vegetables and toss gently to coat. Serves 4.
