Recipe by me & alex
Tastes like a Greek style rice dish, that great lemony flavor. Cooking the rice in the butter first, adds so much more flavor.

I quite liked this dish! It was easy to prepare and a nice change from plain ole rice. DS thought that it was a little too lemony (I made this with fresh lemon juice), but he's the picky eater in the family. DD had a friend over for supper and this child went back for a big helping of seconds. I left out the zucchini because I didn't have any but made the recipe exactly as directed, otherwise. I doubled the amounts and found that the leftovers made a really great fried rice a couple of days later. Thank you for sharing!
