    Mommy Diva's Note:

    A great basic recipe for a fast side dish - who doesn't like to dress up their veggies? I use regular olive oil as I haven't found the "O Olive Oil" called for in the recipe yet - but posted it as written. Also like to sprinkle with a little (light) bit of freshly shredded/grated Parmesan cheese for a nice twist. Another nice, quick and easy recipe from Sandra Lee on the Food Network - work night meals woohoo!! Check out the other recipes from this episode that compliment this well:Lemon-Herb Butter-Basted Chicken, Lemon Chicken Soup, Lemon Pudding Brulee with Blueberries, and a nice Lemon Cream Martini. YUMMY!! ;)

      Delicious and soooo easy. I fixed this as written and used a Meyer lemon from our tree here in CA. Served with Mommy Diva's Nw Trout With Mushrooms (Zwtiii)#230220 and it made a wonderful meal. Made for Cook-A-Thon for Mommy Diva.
