Bow Ties With Zucchini in Lemon Garlic Sauce

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by NotQuiteVegetarian

This is a great vegetarian recipe from the Australian Women's Weekly Great Fast Recipes collection. As usual for Sussan recipes, it's quick, easy and yummy! Could be a bit light for people who prefer meat with their meals though - we accompanied it with crumbed chicken and loved it. For vegos, could go well with jacket potatoes topped with maybe a mushroom cream sauce, or just sour cream and snipped shallots or chives.

This made for a light and tasty dinner. It was also very fast to prepare. Not sure about using "medium" zucchini- I went by the suggested weight (12oz of zucchini and 12oz of squash) and this came out to 1 medium of each from my garden, which seemed to be the right amount. I added some lemon juice and extra zest to the batch too, in order to kick up the lemony flavor. Served with Asiago Cheese bagels. Thanks, Sussan. [Made for Bargain Basement Tag]
