      Can't believe I'm the first to review this. It is a really great recipe. I used Ras El Hanout - Moroccan Spice Mix for the spice mix. I've made this twice now. Once as written, with chicken, and it came out wonderfully. Second time I used lamb, braising the spiced meat with onions, water, and tomatoes before adding the zucchini (and threw in some eggplant as well). This is definitely in my tried and true file now.
