This recipe is so delicious, I made this for a diner party and the flavors are absolutely fantastic. Did not have zucchinis on hand but replaced them with green peas, still was great. I think that the combination of herbs de provence, parmesan cheese and lemon zests adds to the great flavors of this dish. Thanks for this great recipe will be making it agains for sure.
