Really nice recipe! I had this for lunch by itself and cant wait to serve it as a side dish. I did use dried cherries and dried parsley. The only thing that I would do differently next time is not add the zucchini in the beginning as it cooked down a lot and didnt have a lot of flavor. Thank you JustMarried! for creating this recipe.
