    me & alex's Note:

    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!

      This recipe is now a staple that I serve with fish, especially rosemary grilled salmon fillets. I wanted a more lemony taste so I usually add some dried lemon zest. I also use 1/2 Tbsp of dried parsley when I don't have fresh. Fresh is better.
