Saute briskly for a minute or so; add zucchini, corn, remaining jalapeno from above and season with salt. Continue to saute over fairly high heat for about 5 minutes. The zucchini and onion may color slightly. Pour the steeped cream from the sauce instructions directly into the pan through a strainer. Add the tomato and simmer for several minutes. Simmer until the sauce has reduced and thickened a little and the zucchini is done. Season to taste with salt and serve garnished with chopped cilantro.
